Microsoft’s new browser will play nice


Good news on the browser war front. Finaly!

For many web developers, Microsoft’s decision to make IE 8 conform to standards used by other browsers will go a long way toward making the web work better.

Microsoft’s current browser, IE 7, came under fire from some web developers because it handles web page code differently than Mozilla’s Firefox, Apple’s Safari and other browsers. The lack of standards between browsers confounded developers and forced some to create two different versions of the same website.

This should go a long way to make the web user-experience a little better, and reduce the costs of web development.
