Browsium Ion 3.0 charges toward release

Posted by: Browsium Tags: Posted date:


It wasn’t so long ago that the world of enterprise browser management changed forever with the release of Browsium Ion. Gone were the days time-consuming application rewrites and complex and expensive virtualization projects. Ion brought simple web application remediation to the enterprise, unblocking stalled Windows 7 migrations.

Change is upon us again with the beta release of a major upgrade to Ion, delivering dramatic improvements in ease of use, reliability, and scalability. Ion 3.0 is built on our brand new architecture called “Covalence” that delivers a powerful web application remediation and browser management platform. With Covalence, Ion 3.0 will quickly and cost-effectively solve your browser migration challenges, with no adverse impact on non-remediated applications. Ion 3.0 truly is the ultimate tool for managing browser compatibility in the enterprise.

Browsium Ion 3.0 Beta is available today for you to begin your testing. We will gather customer feedback, finalize some outstanding work items, and then quickly turn around the commercial release. So download it today using one of the following methods:

  1. If you have engaged with us in the past, we just need you to confirm your email address and we’ll direct you to the beta download page.
  2. If we didn’t find your email address in our database, or you’re new to Browsium, you can fill out our beta request  form. We’ll direct you to the beta download page after verifying your email address.

To learn more about Browsium Ion 3.0, and to prepare for your beta testing, please refer to the Release Notes. Some of the key new features include:

  • Ion 3.0 simplifies web application remediation with smarter defaults and new wizards to automate complex tasks.
  • The new Java Version Manager provides a wizard that automatically detects all versions of Java installed on the system and enables easy selection of the desired Java version to be invoked to override the default.
  • The Covalence architecture invokes and controls Ion-managed instances of Internet Explorer, with admin-specified document modes and user agent strings, HTML, JavaScript and ActiveX Control overrides, and custom registry settings. An unlimited number of custom configurations can be created, and all are isolated from the default instance of Internet Explorer to deliver maximum performance and reliability.
  • Ion 3.0 utilizes N+1 instances of Internet Explorer, where N is the number of Ion Profiles in use on a client system and “+1” represents the native, unmanaged instance of Internet Explorer. A new Internet Explorer window will be launched as each Profile is invoked. Multiple websites sharing the same Profile will open in tabs within a single Internet Explorer window. This experience maximizes performance and reliability for remediated applications, and ensures that Ion doesn’t interfere with non-remediated applications.
  • Ion 3.0 adds support for IE10 on Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2, and sets the stage for support for Windows 8.1 and Windows Server 2012 R2 with IE11 – coming in a future release.
