WebSocket Demonstration on Microsoft Internet Explorer

It's like XML, but you can store source code in it.

The main article introducing the WebSocket server demonstration did not include much information about running it on Microsoft Internet Explorer. MSIE is a bit crippled until Google frame is installed, but here I've made the process as painless as possible, I think.

First, fire up MSIE and click on this link: Step 1. That should automatically call up a window asking if you want to install Google frame. Accept terms and conditions, etc. and wait until the process completes. You'll probably end up on a page suggesting an interesting vacation spot. You can close that page and return to this one.

Then, just go to the demo page: Step 2. The demonstration should work.

Leave a comment if you try it. I only have personal access to so many computers running MSIE. Would like to know if this works for everyone. If you comment on a problem, please note the version of MSIE and operating system.

  1. The WebSocket demonstration on Microsoft Internet Explorer highlights the browser's capability to support real-time, bidirectional communication. This demonstration showcases how WebSocket can facilitate instant data exchange between clients and servers, significantly improving web application interactivity. Despite IE's declining usage, this demonstration is crucial for legacy systems and compatibility testing. It underscores the importance of WebSocket technology in modern web development, paving the way for smoother, more responsive user experiences across various applications.
