Microsoft Cancels Development of Internet Explorer for Mac

Friday June 13th, 2003

CNET News.com is reporting that there will be no new versions of Internet Explorer for the Mac. The Mac OS version of IE has not received a major update since early 2000 when Internet Explorer 5 for Mac was released (rumours of the product's demise began circulating shortly after). The Mac version of IE5 contained a new rendering engine, Tasman, which was hailed by standards advocates at the time of its launch. MSN for Mac OS X, released last month, contains an updated version of Tasman.

The news of Mac IE's demise comes hot on the heels of reports that there may be no more standalone releases of IE for Windows.

And as a result, they don't turn very well at all...
