Your Browser History Is Showing

calumtdalek Re:Microsoft actually did something right (174 comments)

It all depends on if your inprivate browser history changes the color of links when they are displayed (or in general obey the css style sheets for visited links). Perhaps someone with IE8 can test it out for us [I lack access to a windows machine]?

calumtdalek (983493) writes "The source code search engine market has seen quite a few developments in the recent past, with google launching its own source code search engine recently. Now another company, All The Code, is entering the competition, with a new way of ranking results. According to the faq, it "considers the relation between code" rather than the traditional single project view used by its predecessors like koders & google codesearch. I wonder if this technique will be adopted by the other industry players?"

calumtdalek (983493) writes "Traditional source code search engines have relied solely on the code within a file. All The Code, a new source code search engine, looks at how code is used to help determine the relevance of source code. The difference in terms of results is similar to the difference between early web search engines which relied entirely on Presently All The Code is still in alpha, with support for only Java implemented, but its still interesting to see the technology in action. I wonder if google codesearch will implement something similar to this?"
