IE8 beta 1 first impressions

Thursday, March 6th, 2008

Anyone who cares has heared that IE8 beta 1 has just been released, with quite a bit of documentation.

Mark “Tarquin” Wilton-Jones offers a pretty good overview of the changes. Many are good, and I’m especially happy with the Acid2 support and the decision to make the IE8 rendering mode the default. It is also important to note that there is still “much more” expected in beta 2.

Sad day for web standards

Update: Less sad since IE7 mode is no longer the default mode

Winners: Microsoft and lazy web developers
Losers: Alternate browsers and forward-thinking web developers

An update

Wednesday, January 16th, 2008

I became a (very proud) father last week of a beautiful baby boy, which is why I’ve been rather quiet here lately. :) Also, while that happened, I was rewarded an Opera goody bag for my Arkanoid widget. Thank you Opera!

More bloggage to come eventually, but don’t know yet as to when.
