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.

Yeah, XPCOM and XUL are core components to the rendering engine. It's not like they could hold off on those. And if they did, they would have had to rewrite the entire engine to make it XPCOMified thus making the project cycle even longer. Look, the work's been done, they've made their bed, and they will sleep in it, yadda yadda yadda.
