IE's New Rendering Engine

Friday September 10th, 1999

IE will be utilizing a new rendering engine in v5 for Mac, according to this article at TechWeb. And here's a Flash demo to show you what it's all about. A bit weak on specifics, though. If their browser was Open Source, maybe they wouldn't have to resort to using a cartoon called ZipIE as their technical contact.

Thanks to Adam Lock for the news.

It wasn't funny by the first exclamation mark, and it wasn't funny after the ninth.

By the way, assuming I didn't misunderstand the NPL, Microsoft could perfectly legally incorporate the Gecko layout engine into their own browser. I don't think they will, of course, but it would be cool if they did. :)
