A French security firm has verified a vulnerability in Internet Explorer 8 that could be exploited to hijack a Windows system

Opera on Tuesday unveiled technology it calls Opera Unite, which turns your plain old PC into a Web content server. Overall, the effort is quite innovative but with Opera's browser market share it's possible that no one will notice.
Turns out that the "developer preview" of Google's latest creation, Google Wave, is not as open as one would expect, with the preview only being open to attendees of Google's I/O conference — but there is another way to see it in action. And forget wanting to use IE6 with it.
