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.

This is good news for the Internet community. I use Windows not the Mac, but it means that Microsoft are at least partially committed to standards.

This means that finally, this stupid browser standards war can be OVER!!! Everyone has the freedom of choice, and can be assured pages will render correctly in both.

Hopefully Mozilla developers will take up the challenge to better Microsoft :) Competition leads to better products. In most cases.
