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.

I've done this several times. When I get the answer it is always "I'm sorry I don't have time to code for multiple browsers and your browser just isn't up to snuff" (paraphrased). Frankly, most times, I don't blame them. Again, I'm not going to change how people make their sites, but I can certainly build *mine* to standards *when a browser that supports them* is available. Whether it is IE or Mozilla, iCab, or Opera, I couldn't care less. The more the better. But none of them is 100% and available yet.

In any event, I will be glad IE5 supports W3 standards. But as I said, making the Mac version compatible with the Windows version is a big bonus to me as a developer and viewer.
