Submission + - Integrating site search into browser chrome

manastungare writes: "Almost all major browsers now have a search box at the top right corner. However, it goes unused a majority of the time the user is already browsing a website. Given the importance of site-specific search to overall website usability, using the browser search box to perform site-specific searches would enhance usability to a large extent. Here is a proposal to integrate site-specific search boxes into browser chrome from a researcher in human-computer interaction from Virginia Tech. Thoughts, comments, and criticism from the Slashdot community are welcome!"

Submission + - Microsoft India serves Safari broken pages

manastungare writes: "A friend pointed me to Microsoft India's Vista Promotion, which I tried to access using Safari on my Mac. I got back a page that contained an infinite redirect loop. Upon changing the user-agent string to MSIE/Windows, the same page loaded with no errors. Microsoft have pulled this trick in the past during the launch of Windows XP (and again, and again). Why do they keep discriminating against browsers that are perfectly capable of handling their content?"
