Today we opened our first west-coast office with a great new space in Redmond, WA, just down the street from Microsoft’s headquarters. This new office gives us a place for our Washington-based teams to work together, and the perfect facility for hosting meetings with customers. So if you’re planning a trip to meet with Microsoft at their executive briefing center, be sure to book time at ours as well.
Even if you’re just in town for a local Microsoft event, carve out some time for the Browsium team and we’ll lay out the red carpet to meet you. (Actually, the carpet is green and made from recycled carpet fibers as our new office space is in one of the “greenest” buildings in town. They tell us that the flooring in the kitchen area is made from soy bean shells. Certainly worth a look when you’re in the area.)
Our new address and phone number are:
8201 164th Ave. NE, Suite 200
Redmond, WA 98052
We look forward to meeting with all of you.
UniBrows provides the ability to run multiple web applications in the same browser, even when they require different versions of the same ActiveX control. A common scenario involves the Java Runtime Engine (JRE). Using the UniBrows Profiles feature, you can bind the desired version of the JRE and load multiple versions of the JRE side-by-side in the same browser.
We have posted a Support Article explaining how to do this: Loading custom versions of Java with UniBrows.
On this New Year’s Day (at least for all of you on a Gregorian calendar), the team here at Browsium wishes all of you a wonderful 2011. Before the college football bowl games are over (or whatever local tradition you have in your country), we’d like take a moment to reflect back on last year and look forward to what’s ahead.
2010 was a great year with the founding of our Browsium, two solid beta releases of UniBrows, and the year capped off by tremendous press, customer and partner interest in UniBrows kicked off by the articles in Computerworld and InformationWeek. The many nights and weekends given up to get to this point were well worth it and we thank all of you for your support.
2011 promises to be an even better year with the commercial release of UniBrows planned for early in the first quarter of the year. Feedback on the beta releases has been excellent and we’re on the glide path to final release. Those of you participating in the UniBrows beta program should expect to see a new beta refresh early this week and those of you patiently waiting to evaluate UniBrows will have an evaluation kit in your hands as soon as we launch the commercial release.
We look forward to working with all of you to solve your IE6 compatibility issues and get you ready for the new year with IE8 on Windows XP or an upgrade directly to Windows 7. Together we’ll make 2011 a great year and say goodbye to IE6 headaches for everyone.
