Microsoft Windows Exec Talks IE, Firefox

With no major updates to Internet Explorer scheduled until Longhorn arrives in 2006, Microsoft has found itself having to evangelize the current merits of IE while competition heats up from newcomers such as Firefox.

Gary Schare, Director of Windows Product Management at Microsoft, sat down with BetaNews to discuss the future of IE, including the possibility of tabbed browsing, Mozilla's "free ride," and why Microsoft feels it is better equipped to handle security.

Yahoo Mail Adds DomainKeys Authentication
by Donna Buenaventura / November 15, 2004 1:02 AM PST

Yahoo Inc. is putting its e-mail authentication method into action.

On Monday, the Sunnyvale, Calif., company will begin to support its DomainKeys cryptographic approach for Yahoo Mail, one of the largest Web-based e-mail services in the world.

Yahoo's DomainKeys move will come as part of a series of enhancements to Yahoo Mail. The company will announce that it has increased the storage limit for free e-mail accounts from 100MB to 250MB and has raised the maximum attachment size for premium accounts from 10MB to 20MB.

By supporting DomainKeys on its own service, Yahoo hopes to jump-start broader adoption of its answer to stemming the rise of spam and phishing attacks through e-mail.

Online attackers regularly send unsolicited e-mails and lure consumers into clicking malicious links or providing personal information by disguising their e-mail addresses with the domains of major consumer companies.
