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.

#52 At least they have a release date

See title. Mozilla is still horizonware, and I still have yet to see a useful release. Maybe if they had done things more correctly they would have focused on the rendering engine first and worried about all the extras like XUL and XCOM later. Because at least if the rendering engine was put out in a usable way, other browsers for alternate platforms could use it with their own interface. I have yet to see this. So, at least IE for the Mac shows promise. And it feels like a Mac app too.
