Win7/IE8+ Protected Mode RRS feed

  • Question


    Few high level questions about Enabled Protected Mode in IE8+ running on Win7, I know the technical differences between WinXP and Win7 that makes Protected Mode available in Win7 but what I don't get is how does this effect web programmers? And for compatibility, how can a programmer develop an extension/web application that can run properly on WinXP/IE and Win7/IE8+? Do they need to check if Protected Mode is enabled beforehand and then branch from there? Any online resources on how to do this?

    One last point, does Protected Mode effect IE extensions only or also web applications?
