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.

Yes, actually, the license does state they must publish modifications to the code. But they only have to publish files containing that code, not their own. In other words, it wouldn't open up all of IE, but they would have to show they were using the Source, and they would have to publish modifications. Go read the NPL yourself and see.
