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.

#2 is MS using Gecko ?)

who knows ? maybe Tasman (MS' new layout engine) is "inspired" by Gecko ? maybe MS engineers like Open Source ?!

more seriously, Mac Users will almost certainly be happy beta-testers for this new product before it is ported to the PC...
