Revised the errors —Preceding unsigned comment added by Idol0825 (talkcontribs) 06:41, 16 April 2010 (UTC)

I am in charge of technical research in my company and being interested in this product. But its information does not exist on Wikipedia, so actually I got these information gathering from the web page the company, not on promotion. Now I've deleted a kind of some promotional expression, and I will updated this page based on fact and technical contents. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Idol0825 (talkcontribs) 04:01, 14 April 2010

Thank you for reducing the advertising language, I've removed the speedy deletion request for now because of that. However we do have other deletion processes that may be used on this if it is not improved further with reliable independent sources. See the links that have been put on your talk page for more.

Thank you for concerning my article and removing the speedy deletion. I am just "newly-Wikipedian", so I got some mistakes on the article. I will update it based on real and fact contents. idol0825 10:01, 15 April 2010

Much cleanup[edit]

I just made some moderately significant cleanup of the article:

  1. Changed the three references to use the Wayback, since the links were dead as they were.
  2. Changed "WEB" to "web", and linked it to world wide web, since "WEB" is something completely unrelated. I don't think we need to treat "web" as a proper noun in 2017. :-)
  3. Improved various other links.
  4. Eliminated the "Product line" section, since it was completely redundant with content in the prior paragraph, and sounds too much like marketing-speak anyway.
  5. Removed the trademark (TM) symbols, since those also make it look like the article was written the owner of the intellectual property.
  6. I linked "Infraware, Inc." to Polaris Office, since that is the company's flagship product. If and when someone creates a page for the company itself, we can update this link.
  7. I removed the "Competitors" section; the Categories at the bottom of the article are sufficient. 3 out of 4 links were dangling (red) anyway!
  8. I deleted the "Overview" section header, which at that point was the last remaining header. This -- thankfully -- stops the TOC from being displayed. This article is too short to need such structure.

The biggest hassle I had was dealing with the fact that the Browser isn't explicitly promoted by the company (Infraware) anymore, as far as I can tell; version 7, the final one afaict, came out in 2011; since that time, the company's web site has been restructured. I can't find a product page for the Browser, and other references to it are extremely minimal. This is in stark contrast to Polaris Office, which has an entire web site devoted to it. It would be great if someone could fill in the information gap here. Also, since this article as it stands is essentially the history of a historical product, it should probably be reworked to be in the past tense. Either that, or the current product should be described. I doubt anyone cares what enhancements were added in version 6.0, for example. 8.46.40.253 (talk) 18:20, 19 April 2017 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by 8.46.40.253 (talk) 18:17, 19 April 2017 (UTC)
