PBBrowser Compatibility

Tuesday, 9 August 2011 14:47 by JRBenning

The built-in Peanut Butter Browser utilizes the Windows internal browser and is therefore the same as latest version of IE on your computer.  Even though IE 8, 9 and now 10 have significantly upgraded the IE rendering engine to be more CSS and HTML compliant, the Windows internal browser is still stuck in the old IE 7 rendering by default.

We will tackle this in a future release.  But, if you are not faint-of-heart, we have an immediate solution for you.

Changes made to the Windows registry happen immediately, and no backup is automatically made. Do not edit the Windows registry unless you are confident about doing so.

1. Run regedit and find the following Key...

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\MAIN\FeatureControl\FEATURE_BROWSER_EMULATION

If it doesn't exist, just create it.

2. Now, create a new DWORD value called "pbbrowser.exe" without the quotes.

3. Now modify the decimal value to one of the following...

9999
Internet Explorer 9. Webpages are displayed in IE9 Standards mode, regardless of the !DOCTYPE directive.

9000
Internet Explorer 9. Webpages containing standards-based !DOCTYPE directives are displayed in IE9 mode.

8888
Webpages are displayed in IE8 Standards mode, regardless of the !DOCTYPE directive.

8000
Webpages containing standards-based !DOCTYPE directives are displayed in IE8 mode.

7000
Webpages containing standards-based !DOCTYPE directives are displayed in IE7 Standards mode.
 

4) Close regedit

5) Now we will test the things by running pbbrowser.exe from the Peanut Butter PC directory and manually entering the following address... http://thismachine.info

6) If all goes well, the new emulation will be reflected on the screen.

Good luck and email us if you have any questions.
