So i previously made a post titled, "modernize ie6," After coming to a decision to upgrade to ie8, I realized it was a lot better, although not perfect at all, but usable. I kind of just got bored with ie6. So the point of my new project, is modernizing not ie6, but ie8. If you don't know, there's a lot of sites that depend on tls 1.1 or 1.2, while ie8 in XP doesn't support either. For example, Wikipedia. Even that (a mostly text based site) wont load. "This page cannot be displayed" Im sure you all have seen that error at some point in time. So heres a few goals: -tls 1.1 and 1.2 support (SOLVED) -html5 support (if thats even possible) -ecc support -acid3 support -better speed (really slow on some sites compared to Firefox or anything else, if thats even possible to fix) - other miscellaneous things you think would be helpful So feel free to reply if you know of anything. Thanks! DISCLAIMER: please don't say stuff like, "lol why r u using ie8?" or "just use another browser" or maybe even "ie8 is dangerous because its not supported by Microsoft, use Firefox!" Because you see that ruins the point of my experiment, I already have other browsers, I just want to see what I can do with ie8.
WinClient5270 posted a topic in Windows VistaImportant announcement for Dropbox users still running Windows Vista: As of January 2018, the Dropbox desktop client will no longer connect to the Dropbox service on PCs running Windows Vista. However, you can work around this by running the application in compatibility mode for Windows NT 4.0 (Service Pack 5), and the software should then connect to Dropbox just fine. Keep in mind, this was tested on the 41.4.80 version of the client, which was released on January 8, 2018. This workaround may be patched in newer versions, or newer versions of the client may not work in Vista at all, so I wouldn't count on this solution being a good long-term strategy. If/when this no longer works, you may simply use the web version of Dropbox (as long as you're using a supported web browser. View this post to see a list of web browsers as well as other software that still support Vista). UPDATE MARCH 22, 2018: The software must now be downloaded from FileHippo, as the vendor's site no longer allows downloads to any Windows PCs running versions older than Windows 7. Anyway, with that said, here's how to perform the workaround: 1. First of all, make sure all instances of Dropbox are closed. To do this, open Task Manager, click on the 'Processes' tab, and end 'Dropbox.exe': 2. Next, open Explorer and navigate to Program Files (x86 if on a 64-bit system)\Dropbox\Client and highlight Dropbox.exe: 3. Right-click on Dropbox, click Properties, and in the following dialogue, click the 'Compatibility' tab and choose Windows NT 4.0 (Service Pack 5): 4. After doing this, click OK and you may then close out the Windows Explorer window. Now, if you did everything correctly, Dropbox should connect just fine on Windows Vista, and you may use it normally!
