所有主流瀏覽器的最新版都支援 WebAssembly 了

Mozilla 的「WebAssembly support now shipping in all major browsers」提到了最近幾個禮拜,新版的 SafariEdge 都相繼支援 WebAssembly 了:

In the past weeks, both Apple and Microsoft have shipped new versions of Safari and Edge, respectively, that include support for WebAssembly.

由於 ChromeFirefox 都已經支援了,這宣告 WebAssembly 的障礙都已經排除了,接下來只是時間的問題... 對於需要效能的應用程式來說多了一個方式加速。

跨各平台的 Microsoft Edge 又讓搞網站的人爆炸...

還好用的人應該不會太多 (?)

微軟宣佈在 iOSAndroid 以及微軟自家的系統上都推出 Microsoft Edge:「Announcing Microsoft Edge for iOS and Android, Microsoft Launcher」,另外也很「貼心」的整理了一篇不同平台上的差異 (尤其是 iOS 與 Android):「Microsoft Edge for iOS and Android: What developers need to know」。

不過 Twitter 上微軟自家人 Kyle Pflug‏ 講的比較簡單:

把重點講的超清楚,然後順建讓人有種 WTF 的感覺 XDDD (等於是一次推出三個不同行為的 browser 啊!)

設計師鐵定會詛咒他不要流行起來 XDDD

Adobe Flash 將在 2020 年 End of Life

Adobe 發出的公告,將在 2020 年中止所有對 Flash 的支援:「Flash & The Future of Interactive Content」。

Specifically, we will stop updating and distributing the Flash Player at the end of 2020 and encourage content creators to migrate any existing Flash content to these new open formats.

然後 GoogleMicrosoft 也來補刀講兩句話:「So long, and thanks for all the Flash」、「Saying goodbye to Flash in Chrome」、「The End of an Era – Next Steps for Adobe Flash」。

除了 DNS 的 TTL 外,還有瀏覽器本身的 cache time...

在看「Reviewing Fastly’s New Approach To Load Balancing In The Cloud」這篇的時候被提醒:

However, most browsers have implemented their own caching layer that can override the TTL specified by the server. In fact, some browsers cache for 5-10 minutes, which is an eternity when a region or data center fails and you need to route end users to a different location.

我印象中沒那麼長,但也記不起來多長,所以查了一下...

結果 IE 在「How Internet Explorer uses the cache for DNS host entries」直接說三十分鐘 XDDD 這篇文章是 2011 年更新的,所以至少到 IE9 都是對的?

Internet Explorer 4.x and later versions modify how DNS host entries are cached by decreasing the default time-out value to 30 minutes.

Firefox 的值可以從 Mozilla networking preferences 這邊對 network.dnsCacheExpiration 的說明看到是 60 秒。

Google Chrome 沒找到官方的說明...

不過這可以知道當你要換 IP address 時,如果可以讓新舊 IP 都提供服務的話,至少規劃半個小時會比較保險。如果有其他理由而沒辦法同時提供服務的話,至少公告步驟裡要有「重開瀏覽器」這塊。

而作業系統自己的 cache 又是另外要計算進去的事了...

IE 與 Edge 推出更新,阻擋 SHA-1 憑證

微軟這幾天推出更新,IEEdge 將不會接受 SHA-1 憑證:「Microsoft Makes it Official, Cuts off SHA-1 Support in IE, Edge」。微軟的公告則是在「Deprecation of SHA-1 for SSL/TLS Certificates in Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer 11」這邊。

根憑證不受影響 (所以企業自己產生的 Root CA 也不受影響):

Beginning May 9, 2017, Microsoft released updates to Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer 11 to block sites that are protected with a SHA-1 certificate from loading and to display an invalid certificate warning. This change will only impact SHA-1 certificates that chain to a root in the Microsoft Trusted Root Program where the end-entity certificate or the issuing intermediate uses SHA-1. Enterprise or self-signed SHA-1 certificates will not be impacted, although we recommend that all customers quickly migrate to SHA-2 based certificates.

修改 User-Agent 讓 Office 365 服務變快...

Facebook 上看到剛剛在 Hacker News 上熱起來的「Onedrive is slow on Linux but fast with a “Windows” user-agent (2016)」這篇,引用了 2016 年在 Microsoft Community 上的討論:「Onedrive for Business open is very slow on Linux (Chrome/Firefox) but with very fast with a "Windows" user-agent」。

Reddit 的「Office 365 Onedrive looks at user-agent to determine performance.」有更多的討論。

因為工作上也會用到 Office 365,也覺得在 Ubuntu 上用起來超級慢,然後看到有使用者也講了 Linux 下的 Google Chrome 也會有類似的問題:

I just tried this same thing--changing the OS in the user agent--on Chome on Linux. The difference really is incredible. Normally I find 365 to be so slow as to be borderline unusable, now it's almost as quick as Google docs. Even the institutional log-ins for my university are faster.

EDIT: Just to clarify, I was testing specifically the web apps for Word and OneNote hosted by my uni. I tried loading them both in normal tabs and ones where I had changed the OS useragent in Chrome's developer panel. The normal tabs hung badly as usual (30+ seconds to load the UI), while the modified tabs loaded very quickly. I tried this several times, but I suppose YMMV.

所以我也拿「User-Agent Switcher for Chrome」加上 IE11 的 user-agent 後測試:

最明顯的差異就是 redirect 變少了,然後開 Word 與 Excel 的速度變快好多 @_@

在原討論串上的官方回應是:

As Office 365 for Business services(e.g. SharePoint Online, including OneDrive for Business, Exchange Online) are not supported on Linux as shown below, for the best experience, we recommend the operating system listed in the article.

所以只能拿老招出來,把 User-Agent 改成 IE 後就變得超~級~快~

然後最 helpful 的回答是:

Thank you
I go back to Google Apps suite.

棍 XDDD

微軟預定在 2017 年的西洋情人節淘汰 SHA-1 certificate

經過多次改動後,微軟這次宣佈 SHA-1 certificate 將在明年淘汰:「SHA-1 deprecation countdown」。

影響的範圍包括 Internet Explorer 11Microsoft Edge,在 2017 年 2 月 14 日之後不信任 SHA-1 certificate:

Starting on February 14th, 2017, Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer 11 will prevent sites that are protected with a SHA-1 certificate from loading and will display an invalid certificate warning.

與其他家類似,還是提供了管道讓企業內部建立的 SHA-1 certificate 可以用:

This will only impact SHA-1 certificates that chain to a Microsoft Trusted Root CA. Manually-installed enterprise or self-signed SHA-1 certificates will not be impacted, although we recommend for all customers to quickly migrate to SHA-256.

HTML 的 preconnect

在「Preconnect」這邊看到 Preconnect 這個功能,目前在 Mozilla FirefoxGoogle Chrome 以及 Opera 都有支援,用法也很簡單:

<link rel="preconnect" href="//example.com">
<link rel="preconnect" href="//cdn.example.com" crossorigin>

感覺如果要用的話,可以先送出 head 的部分,打 flush 讓瀏覽器先收到後再送出其他部分?不過對 MVC 架構來說好像變複雜了,不知道有什麼設計比較好...

另外一個是 Prerender,目前是 IE11+、Google Chrome 以及 Opera 有支援,看起來也頗有趣的...

微軟也宣佈 SHA-1 的 SSL certificate 將於 2016 年七月停用

在「SHA-1 Deprecation Update」這篇文章中宣佈本來在「Windows Enforcement of Authenticode Code Signing and Timestamping」這邊宣佈 2017 年停用 SHA-1 SSL certificate 的進度將提前到 2016 年七月 (到 2016 六月前仍然可以使用)。

在微軟的文章裡也有提到,如同 Mozilla 在前幾個禮拜宣佈的「Continuing to Phase Out SHA-1 Certificates」計畫,也是預定把 2017 年的淘汰計畫提前到 2016 年七月。

主要是因為「對 SHA-1 的攻擊進展」這邊提到對 SHA-1 的新攻擊,所以決定提前半年...
