DEAR WIKIPEDIA READERS: To protect our independence, we’ll never run ads. We take no government funds. We survive on donations averaging about $15. Now is the time we ask. If everyone reading this right now gave $3, our fundraiser would be done within an hour. We’re a small non-profit with costs of a top 5 website: servers, staff and programs. Wikipedia is something special. It is like a library or a public park where we can all go to think and learn. If Wikipedia is useful to you, take one minute to keep it online and ad-free another year. Thank you.

Changes[edit]

IE11 features redesigned developer tools,[4] support for WebGL,[5] enhanced scaling for high DPI screens,[6] prerender and prefetch.[7] IE11 supports SPDY[8] on Windows 8.1 only.[9] In addition, IE11 supports Full Screen and Orientation APIs, CSS Flexbox and border image support, JavaScript enhancements, DOM mutation observers, Web Cryptography API, video text track support, encrypted media support and an improved HTML editor.[10]

Removed features[edit]
  • IE11 has removed support for document.all and attachEvent APIs.[10]
  • Quick Tabs (CTRL+Q)[11]
  • Work Offline command removed from File menu [12]
  • Drag and drop of selected content from IE to other programs like Word or WordPad[citation needed]
  • Use large icons for command buttons Group Policy setting no longer supported. [13]
  • Ability to view all cookies at once via Developer Tools

Performance[edit]

In one review, IE11 scored better than Google Chrome 30 and Firefox 26 in 2 of 4 benchmarks (including WebKit‘s SunSpider test), tied for fastest in a 3rd benchmark, and was last in Google’s V8 performance benchmark. As a result of the speed improvements, the reviewer said “if you switched to Chrome for speed alone, you’re now using the wrong browser.”[10]

IE11 was also observed to use less memory with multiple tabs open than contemporary versions of Chrome and Firefox.[10]

As per MSDN, IE11 is the first browser to make Internet connections more secure and reliable by reducing the use of vulnerable ciphersuites, such as RC4 and by using the latest security standards, TLS 1.2, by default.

History[edit]

Though an internal build of IE11 was leaked on 25 March 2013,[14] its first preview version was not formally released until June 2013, during the Build 2013 conference, along with the preview release of Windows Server 2012 R2 and Windows 8.1.[15] On 25 July 2013, Microsoft released the developer preview of Internet Explorer 11 for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2.[2][16]

      Office 365 is a subscription-based online office and software plus services suite which offers access to various services and software built around the Microsoft Office platform.

      Serving as a successor to Microsoft’s Business Productivity Online Suite, the service was originally designed to provide hosted e-mail, social networking and collaboration, and cloud storage to teams and businesses. As such, it first included hosted versions of Exchange, Lync, SharePoint, Office Web Apps, along with access to the Microsoft Office 2010 desktop applications on the Enterprise plan. With the release of Office 2013, Office 365 expanded to include new plans aimed at different types of businesses, along with new plans aimed at general consumers wanting to use the Office desktop software on a subscription basis.[1]

      After a beta testing process which began in October 2010, Office 365 was officially launched on June 28, 2011.[2]

      History[edit]

      Microsoft first announced Office 365 in October 2010; beginning with a private beta with various organizations, leading into a public beta in April 2011, and reaching general availability on June 28, 2011. Facing growing competition from Google‘s similar service Google Apps, Microsoft designed the Office 365 platform to “[bring] together” its existing online services (such as the Business Productivity Online Suite) into “an always-up-to-date cloud service” incorporating Exchange Server (for e-mail), SharePoint (for internal social networking, collaboration, and a public web site), and Lync (for communication, VoIP, and conferencing). Plans were initially launched for small business and enterprises; the small business plan offered Exchange e-mail, SharePoint Online, Lync Online, web hosting via SharePoint, and the Office Web Apps, with the enterprise plan also adding per-user licenses for the Office 2010 Professional Plus software and 24/7 phone support.[3] Following the official launch of the service, Business Productivity Online Suite customers were given 12 months to plan and perform their migration from BPOS to the Office 365 platform.[4]

      With the release of Office 2013, an updated version of the Office 365 platform was launched on February 27, 2013. The server components were updated to their respective 2013 versions, and Microsoft expanded the Office 365 service with new plans, such as Small Business Premium, Midsize Premium, and ProPlus.[5] A new Office 365 Home Premium plan aimed at home users was also introduced; the new plan offers access to the Office 2013 suite for up to five computers, along with expanded SkyDrive storage and 60 minutes of Skype calls monthly. The plan is aimed at mainstream consumers, especially those who want to install Office on multiple computers. A University plan was also introduced, targeted towards users going to post-secondary education.[6][7] With these new offerings, Microsoft began to offer prepaid Office 365 subscriptions through retail outlets alongside the normal, non-subscription-based editions of Office 2013.[8]

      On March 19, 2013, Microsoft detailed its plans to provide integration with the enterprise social networking platform Yammer (which they had acquired in 2012) for Office 365: such as the ability to use a single sign-on between the two services, shared feeds and document aggregation, and the ability to entirely replace the SharePoint news feed and social functionality with Yammer.[9] The ability to provide a link to a Yammer network from an Office 365 portal was introduced in June 2013, with heavier integration (such a Yammer app for SharePoint and single sign-on) to be introduced in July 2013.[10]

      On July 8, 2013, Microsoft unveiled PowerBI, a suite of business intelligence and self-serve data mining tools for Office 365, to be released later in the year. PowerBI is primarily incorporated into Excel, allowing users to use the Power Query tool to create spreadsheets and graphs using public and private data, and also perform geovisualization with Bing Maps data using the Power Map tool (previously available as a beta plug-in known as GeoFlow). Users will also be able to access and publish reports, and perform natural language queries on data.[11][12] As a limited time offer for certain markets (but notably excluding the U.S.), Microsoft also announced that those who purchase an Office 365 Home Premium or University subscription before September 28, 2013 would receive a one-year Xbox Live Gold subscription.[13]

      Features[edit]

      The Office 365 service consists of a number of products and services. All of Office 365’s components can be managed and configured through an online portal; users can be added manually, imported from a CSV file, or Office 365 can be set up for single sign-on with a local Active Directory using Active Directory Federation Services.[4][14]

      Hosted services[edit]

      Business and enterprise-oriented plans for Office 365 offer access to cloud hosted versions of Office’s server platforms on a software as a service basis, including Exchange, Lync, SharePoint, and the browser-based Office Web Apps suite.[2] Through SharePoint’s SkyDrive Pro functionality (formally known as SharePoint MySites, and distinct from the consumer-oriented SkyDrive service), each user also receives 7 GB of online storage.[15]

      In lieu of Microsoft’s enterprise software, the Home Premium plan for Office 365 instead includes 20 GB of additional storage for SkyDrive, along with 60 minutes of phone calls per month on Skype.[1]

      Office applications[edit]

      Some plans for Office 365 also include access to the current versions of the Office desktop applications for both Windows (Office 2013) and OS X (Office for Mac 2011) for the period of the subscription. In the case of Office 2013 on Windows, it is installed using a “Click-to-Run” system which allows users to begin using the applications almost instantaneously whilst files are streamed in the background. Updates to the software are installed automatically, covering both security updates and major new versions of Office. A feature known as “Office on Demand” is also available, which allows users to temporarily stream an Office 2013 application on any compatible computer without needing to fully install it.[1][7][8][16]

      Access to the Office Mobile apps for Android and iPhone smartphones are also included.[17][18]

      Updates[edit]

      The Office 365 platform uses a rolling release model; updates to the online components of the service are provided once per quarter. On launch, the 2010 versions of server components were used with Office 365. These services were automatically upgraded to their Office 2013 counterparts upon its release in February 2013.[9] With the introduction of Office 2013, Office division head Kurt DelBene stated that minor and incremental updates to the Office desktop software would be provided on a similarly periodic basis to all Office 365 users by means of the streaming system, as opposed to the three-year cycle for major releases of Office that had been used to the past.[9][19]

      Security[edit]

      In December 2011, Microsoft announced that the Office 365 platform was now compliant with the ISO/IEC 27001 security standards, the European Union‘s Data Protection Directive (through the signing of model clauses), and the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act for health care environments in the United States. At the same time, Microsoft also unveiled a new “Trust Center” portal, containing further information on its privacy policies and security practices for the service.[20][21] In May 2012, Microsoft announced that Office 365 was now compliant with the Federal Information Security Management Act: compliance with the act would now allow Office 365 to be used by U.S. government agencies.[22]

      Plans[edit]

      Office 365 is available in a number of different subscription plans aimed at different needs and market segments, providing different sets of features at different price points.[23][24][25] These include:

      • Office 365 Home Premium: Aimed at mainstream consumers and families; includes access to most Office applications for home/non-commercial use (excluding InfoPath and Lync) on up to five devices, 20 GB of additional SkyDrive storage, 60 minutes of Skype international calls per month.[1][26]
        • Office 365 University: A specially-discounted version of Home Premium intended for users in post-secondary institutions. It is similar to Home Premium, except it is purchased on a discounted four-year plan, and only used on two devices by one user.[27]
      • Office 365 Small Business: Offers access to hosted Exchange, SharePoint, and Lync services only.[28]
      • Office 365 Small Business Premium: Aimed at businesses with 1-10 employees and limited IT experience. Offers access to the Office applications on up to five devices per user, plus hosted Exchange (with 25 GB mailbox), SharePoint (with 10 GB of storage, plus an additional 500 MB per user), and Lync services.[26][28]
      • Office 365 ProPlus: Offers access to the Office 2013 Professional Plus applications for up to 25 users on up to five devices per user.[29]
      • Office 365 Midsize Business: Aimed at businesses with 10-250 employees. Offers access to the Office 2013 applications from ProPlus, plus hosted Exchange, SharePoint, and Lync services.[29]
      • Office 365 Enterprise: Intended for use in enterprise environments. Offers access to all Office applications, hosted Exchange, SharePoint, and Lync services, plus enterprise-specific legal compliance features and support.[3][26]

      Reception[edit]

      TechRadar gave the 2013 update of Office 365 a 4.5 out of 5, praising its administration interfaces for being accessible to users with any level of expertise, the seamless integration of SkyDrive Pro into the Office 2013 desktop applications, and the service as a whole for being suitable in small business environments, while still offering “powerful” options for use in larger companies (such as data loss protection and the ability to integrate with a local Active Directory instance). However, the service was panned for how it handled its 2013 update for existing users, and its lack of integration with services such as Skype and Yammer.[14]

          Microsoft Office 2013 (formerly Office 15[6]) is a version of Microsoft Office, a productivity suite for Microsoft Windows. It is the successor of Microsoft Office 2010 and includes extended file format support, user interface updates and support for touch among its new features.[7] Office 2013 is suitable for IA-32 and x64 systems and requires Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 R2 or a later version of either.[8] A version of Office 2013 comes included on Windows RT devices.[9]

          Development on this version of Microsoft Office was started in 2010 and ended on October 11, 2012 when Microsoft Office 2013 was released to manufacturing.[10] Microsoft released Office 2013 to general availability on 29 January 2013.[1] This version includes new features such as integration support for online services (including SkyDrive, Outlook.com, Hotmail, Skype, Yammer and Flickr), improved format support for Office Open XML (OOXML), OpenDocument (ODF) and Portable Document Format (PDF) and support for multi-touch interfaces.

          Microsoft Office 2013 comes in twelve different editions, including three editions for retail outlets, two editions for volume licensing channel, five subscription-based editions available through Microsoft Office 365 program, the web application edition known as Office Web Apps and the Office RT edition made for tablets and mobile devices. Office Web Apps are available free of charge on the web although enterprises may obtain for on-premises installation for a price. Microsoft Office applications may be obtained individually; this includes Microsoft Visio, Microsoft Project and Microsoft SharePoint Designer which are not included in any of the twelve editions.

          Development[edit]

          Development started in 2010 while Microsoft was finishing work on Office 14, released as Microsoft Office 2010. On January 30, 2012, Microsoft released a technical preview of Office 15, build 3612.1010, to a selected group of testers bound by non-disclosure agreements.[11]

          On July 16, 2012, Microsoft held a press conference to show off Office 2013 and to release the Consumer Preview.[12] The Office 2013 Consumer Preview is a free, fully functional version but will expire 60 days after the final product’s release.[13][14] An update was issued for the Office 2013 Customer Preview suite on October 5.[15]

          Office 2013 was released to manufacturing on October 11, 2012.[10] It was made available to TechNet and MSDN subscribers on October 24.[16] On November 15, 2012, 60-days trial versions of Microsoft Office 2013 Professional Plus, Project Professional 2013 and Visio Professional 2013 were made available to the public over the Internet.[5][17] Microsoft has released Office 2013 for general availability on 29 January 2013.[1] Microsoft plans to release service pack 1 in early 2014.[18]

          Features[edit]

          New features[edit]

          Office 2013 is more cloud-based than previous versions; a domain login, Office 365 account, or Microsoft account can now be used to sync Office application settings (including recent documents) between devices, and users can also save documents directly to their SkyDrive account.[19]

          Microsoft Office 2013 includes updated support for ISO/IEC 29500, the International Standard version of Office Open XML (OOXML) file format: in particular it supports saving in the “Strict” profile of ISO/IEC 29500 (Office Open XML Strict).[20] It also supports OASIS version 1.2 of ISO/IEC 26300:2006, Open Document Format,[21] which Office 2013 can read and write.[22] Additionally, Office 2013 provides full read, write, and edit support for ISO 32000 (PDF).

          New features include a new read mode in Microsoft Word, a presentation mode in Microsoft PowerPoint and improved touch and inking in all of the Office programs. Microsoft Word can also insert video and audio from online sources as well as the capability to broadcast documents on the Web.[23] Word and PowerPoint also have bookmark-like features which sync the position of the document between different computers.

          The Office Web Apps suite was also updated for Office 2013, introducing additional editing features and interface changes.[24]

          Other features of Office 2013 include:

          • Flatter look of the Ribbon interface and subtle animations when typing or selecting (Word and Excel)
          • A new visualization for scheduled tasks in Microsoft Outlook

          Changes[edit]

          Distribution changes[edit]

          Unlike past versions of Office, retail copies of Office 2013 are not made available on a DVD; retail copies of Office 2013 and Office 365 subscriptions only contain a product key, and direct users to the Office website to obtain the software. Installation uses an application streaming system, allowing users to begin using Office 2013’s applications almost instantaneously. The DVD version is still offered in select regions, such as what Microsoft classified as emerging markets, as well as Australia, at the discretion of retailers.[35][36]

          Licensing changes[edit]

          The original license agreement for retail editions of Microsoft Office 2013 was different from the license agreements of retail editions of previous versions of Microsoft Office in two significant ways.[37] The first of these was that the software could no longer be transferred to another computer. In previous versions of Office, this restriction applied only to OEM editions; retail Office license agreements allowed uninstalling from one computer to install on another computer.[37]

          Digitally downloaded copies of Office were also said to be permanently locked to that PC’s hardware, preventing it from being transferred to any other computing device. Should the buyer have wished to use Office 2013 on a different computer, or if they later became unable to use the computing device that the original license was downloaded to (e.g. hardware became inoperable due to malfunction) then a completely new, full-priced copy of Office 2013 would have to have been purchased to replace the prior one.[37] Microsoft stated that this change was related to the software piracy that has been rampant for years, worldwide.[38] However, many commentators saw this change as an effort to forcibly move its customers towards the subscription-based business model used by the Office 365 service.[39][40][41] The legality of this move, particularly in Europe, has been questioned.[42]

          However, on March 6, 2013, Microsoft announced that equivalent transfer rights to those in the Office 2010 retail license agreements are applicable to retail Office 2013 copies effective immediately. Transfer of license from one computer to another owned by the same user is now allowed every 90 days, except in the case of hardware failure, in which the license may be moved sooner. The first user of the product is now also allowed to transfer it to another user.[43][44] The second difference, which remains in the updated licensing agreement, is that the software can be installed on only one computer. In previous versions of Office, this restriction also applied only to OEM editions; retail Office license agreements allowed installing the product on two or three computers, depending on the edition.[37]

          Editions[edit]

          Traditional editions[edit]

          As with previous versions, Office 2013 is made available in several distinct editions aimed towards different markets. All traditional editions of Microsoft Office 2013 contain Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote and are licensed for use on one computer.

          Five traditional editions of Office 2013 were released:

          • Home & Student: This suite includes the core applications Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote. It is available at retail outlets and may not be used for commercial purposes.[45]
          • Home & Business: This retail suite adds Outlook to the core lineup.[45]
          • Standard: This suite adds Outlook and Publisher to the core lineup and is only available through volume licensing channels.[46]
          • Professional: A retail suite, it includes Outlook, Publisher and Access as well as the core apps.[45]
          • Professional Plus: Available through volume licensing only, this suite includes Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, Outlook, Publisher, Access, InfoPath and Lync.[46]
          Office 365[edit]

          Main article: Microsoft Office 365

          The Office 365 online services (previously aimed towards business and enterprise users) were expanded for Office 2013 to include new plans aimed at home use. The subscriptions allow use of the Office 2013 applications (along with other services) by multiple users using a software as a service model. Different plans are available for Office 365, some of which also include value-added services, such as 20 GB of SkyDrive storage and 60 Skype minutes per month on the new Home Premium plan.[47] These new subscription offerings were positioned as a new option for consumers wanting a cost-effective way to purchase and use Office on multiple computers in their household.[48]

          Office RT[edit]

          A special version of Office 2013 known as Office 2013 Home & Student RT is shipped with all Windows RT devices, initially consisting of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote. This edition, whilst visually indistinguishable from normal versions of Office 2013, contains special optimizations for ARM-based devices, such as changes to reduce battery usage (including, for example, freezing the animation of the blinking cursor for text editing during periods of inactivity), enabling touch mode by default to improve usability on tablets, and using the graphics portion of a device’s SoC for hardware acceleration.[49][50][51]

          Windows RT devices on launch were shipped with a “preview” version of Office Home & Student 2013 RT. The release date for the final version varied depending on the user’s language, and was distributed through Windows Update when released.[51] On June 5, 2013, Microsoft announced that Windows RT 8.1 would add Outlook to the suite in response to public demand.[52]

          Office RT modifies or excludes other various features for compatibility reasons or resource reduction. To save disk space; templates, clip art, and language packs are downloaded online rather than stored locally. Other excluded features include the removal of support for third-party code such as macros/VBA/ActiveX controls, the removal of support for older media formats and narration in PowerPoint, editing of equations generated with the legacy Equation Editor, data models in Excel (PivotCharts, PivotTables, and QueryTables are unaffected), searching embedded media files in OneNote, along with data loss prevention, Group Policy support, and creating e-mails with information rights management in Outlook.[52][53]

          As the version of Office RT included on Windows RT devices is based off the Home & Student version, it cannot be used for “commercial, nonprofit, or revenue-generating activities” unless the organization has a volume license for Office 2013 already, or the user has an Office 365 subscription with commercial use rights.[54]

          Windows Store apps[edit]

          Alongside Office RT, free versions of OneNote and the Lync client were made available as Windows Store apps upon the release of Windows 8 and RT.[55] The OneNote app, originally known as OneNote MX, contains a limited feature set in comparison to its desktop version, but is also optimized for use on tablets.[56]

          At the Build 2013 keynote, Julie Larson-Green demonstrated an early version of a PowerPoint app for Windows 8/RT.[57]

          Office Mobile[edit]

          Windows Phone 8 ships with an updated version of the Office Mobile suite, consisting of mobile versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote. In comparison to their Windows Phone 7 versions, the new versions add an improved Office Hub interface that can sync recently opened and modified documents (including changes to documents stored via Office 365 and SkyDrive),[58] a separated OneNote app with additional features (such as voice notes and integration with the new “Rooms” functionality of the OS), and improved document editing and viewing functionality.[59]

          In June 2013, Microsoft released a version of Office Mobile for iPhone; it is similar to the Windows Phone version, but requires an Office 365 subscription to use.[60] A version for Android smartphones was released in July 2013.[61]

                We were at Como Zoo in St Paul MN. They have an exhibit with polar bears, and part of it is a pool, you can view from underwater, or walk o on ground level with a 4 ft wall next to the pool,. They can’t jump over the wall from the water. We walked up, just as one of the bears porpoised up from the water RIGHT in front of us…..He (she?) fell back into a back float, covered his mouth with both paws, and GRINNED from ear to ear, I swear to God. I think of them as almost human ever since.

                Did you know that a polar bear’s skin is actually black and their white fur is just thick, clear strands of hair that reflect light and appear to be white.

                With a little imagination, it looks like that hole in the ice is shaped as a bear as well.

              Proof, National Geographic’s online photography experience, has announced the winners of the 2013 National Geographic Photography Contest. A stunning photograph of a polar bear peering up from beneath the melting sea ice on Hudson Bay as the setting midnight sun glows red from the smoke of distant fires has captured the grand prize. The photographer of “The Ice Bear” is Paul Souders of Seattle, Wash. He has won $10,000 (USD) and a trip to National Geographic headquarters in Washington, D.C., to participate in the annual National Geographic Photography Seminar in January 2014.
              Cecile Baudier of Jylland, Denmark, placed first in the People category for the image “Together, Alone.” Adam Tan of Selangor, Malaysia, placed first in the Places category for his image “Long Road to Daybreak,” and Souders’ “The Ice Bear” took first place in the Nature category. The three winning images will be published in National Geographic magazine.
              “The caliber of entries in the National Geographic Photo Contest continues to impress every year,” said Keith Jenkins, director of photography for NationalGeographic.com. “We were thrilled to see a global community of picture lovers connect and share each other’s photos of our world.”
              The annual photo contest attracted more than 7,000 images from over 150 countries. Contestants submitted photographs in three categories: People, Places and Nature. Judging consisted of multiple rounds of evaluation based on creativity, photography quality and genuineness/authenticity of the content.

                  Amazing photograph, but the implication behind this article is “Global Warming”. Scientists have discovered that we are now in a Cooling Phase, so Global Warming is now wrong. I’m sure we will warm again, then cool again, then warm again because the Earth, like everything, is constantly changing. But this article is misleading. Still great picture.

                  One of my most favorite photos was taken on my first roll of black and white film that I shot and developed myself. My all white cat came home with mud all over her from catching frogs. I put her on a old window sill on a shack across the street and took a picture. The cracked and weathered white paint and the mud on her contrasted very nicely.

                  All of those photos are fantastic, but the polar bear… I’m a photographer myself, and I’d have had a hard time getting the shot with the killing machine looking up at me. Wow!
