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.

If you can't view a page correctly with a standards-compliant browser, there's only one right reaction: leave the site.

That's exactly, what they what to achieve: Creating own "standards", bringing people (web developers in this case) to use them and this way force a lot of people to use their products. Did you ever think about, why they created sites like "Site Builder Network"?

Don't get catched. Fight against them. You're not alone.
