Internet Explorer 9
This has been circulating around the internet for the past few days. I wanted to post it here:
From the poster:
Dear Web Developers,
We are so very sorry about IE6.
Come, talk to us during one of the sessions, and we will show you why Internet Explorer 9 is way better.
Way back when, in the times of HTML 4, and CSS was just getting started we worked with IE6. IE6 required us to do everything differently, because of the ways things were implemented. They just had to be different.
Fast forward to 2011. The world is rapidly expanding use of an incomplete spec, HTML5, and things seem OK. Browsers support it, the implementations seem pretty consistent.
I’m reading through the Interoperable HTML Parsing in IE9 blog post on MSDN and there are some nice, and some not so nice things.
The following are some subjects talked about, and what it means for us web developers.
Everything must move forward. The web is no exception. The strange part is, for a while, the internet didn’t move much.
Nowadays the web seems to be pushing forward fast, very fast. Here are some of the new “happenings” on the internet, and where it may be going.
