Introduction

This release brings official support for installing on Microsoft Windows 10. We have also added support for Microsoft's new minimalist web browser Edge.

There are some improvements with this release, such as improved logging when dealing with ESE/SQLite databases, as well as improved time zone error reporting. There have been some improvements to the progress log window where the user can now select and copy multiple log entries. There is also an option to save the entire log to a text file.

 

 

Microsoft Edge Browser

Microsoft Edge (formerly Project Spartan) is the name of Microsoft's next-generation web browser built into Windows 10. The browser, both in name and its core rendering engine, are set to replace the ageing Internet Explorer, although parts of IE11 remains for legacy websites.

The data storage for Microsoft Edge, in many ways, is similar to Internet Explorer; however, there are some database structure changes as well as data location changes. Edge also introduces a new way of storing download information; we have updated NetAnalysis® to identify and interpret this new structure.

NetAnalysis® v2.3 supports Microsoft Edge, as well as introducing support for the new Reading List feature.

 

Reading List and Reading View

The Reading List is a feature in Microsoft Edge where the user can save articles to read later. In addition, it features a Reading View that strips out adverts and page clutter, making it much easier to read articles on different platforms. It also has an option for capturing a web page and making annotations directly to the page. To change between the standard website view mode and the Reading View mode, the user clicks the button to the right of the Web address.

 

   

NetAnalysis® v2.3 can rebuild pages that have been stored in Reading View mode and display them in the internal viewer.

Mozilla Firefox Reading List

Mozilla Firefox has also introduced a Reading List feature in Firefox version 38.0 beta.  This allows users to save links to web pages to be able to read them later. The browser also has a Reading View mode.

 

NetAnalysis® v2.3 supports Mozilla Firefox Reading Lists.

Favicon Display

A favicon (short for favourite icon), also known as a shortcut icon, Web site icon, tab icon or bookmark icon, is a file containing one or more small icons, associated with a particular website or web page. NetAnalysis® v2.3 now supports the extraction (and viewing) of SVG favicons in addition to the standard format icons. We have also added the ability to view these individual image files through our internal viewer.
