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.

you say << Mozilla isn't necessarily going to be the clear winner, even on technical/standards grounds >>

maybe, but that's where Open Source can make the difference. if there's a better feature in the new IE, we can bet someone will be able to take mozilla's sources and add or improve some code. mozilla can be the clear winner *in the long run*.
