Sadly, it’s only been in development for a little while, so while they claim this now I’ll be interested to see what the end result is.
I HOPE that it does everything they say it will, but they also said IE8 would support CSS3 and that didn’t really go anywhere.
It great news but the sad story is that IE users in general aren’t tech savvy and don’t upgrade their browser. Just look at the IE6 share.
As jremick said by the time people upgrade their browser to IE9 CSS3 will be gone and of course we’ll be complaining why IE9 doesn’t support the technologies that other browser support .
ie7 becoming new nightmare instead of ie6 step by step!! Microsoft needs an updateable browser like FF.
“Microsoft needs to come to terms with the fact that they’re the old guy in the room that everyone wishes would just retire so we could all have more fun.”
LOL ,.. I have some Kloroform
Now we’ll have to think of new fixes and hacks for CSS3 .
This is exactly why pushing updates (unobtrusively) like FireFox does is so important. It’s a pity these simple ideas aren’t pervasive industry wide. Big companies like Microsoft simply can’t seem to break out of monolithic business culture and move at a rapid pace. A nimble fox they ain’t.
Who is so sick using still IE? Kill that thing, once and forever.
IE is like the retarded kid in school – eventually he finally gets whats going on, but by the time he does everyone else in school has moved on 2-3 years.
