I think my dislike for IE is well known and founded. When I contacted the company asking when SVG would be implemented (circa 2002 or so) they sent me back a message saying they wouldn't implement silly standards like svg, because then they'd have to implement things like Math ML too! Any one know if IE 9 will have Math ML support? I really thought it would be useful when I first heard about it. Its some what verbose to type in, but more legible to novices than LaTex.

So far, I think that Firefox was the only browser to support MathML (correct me if I'm wrong). As a result, adoption for MathML didn't really pick up.

Also in MathML news: improved support in FF4:

We needed mathml in Webkit 1/2 yeqrs ago damnit.

WebKit isn't a browser. It is a building block for applications. Now, we can at last display formulas in srs software/text editor/browser/ebook-reader without having to install a TeX distribution and display each formula with a png picture that looks ugly among html text/other stuff because it doesn't have the same size/fonts...

Mathml is a standard. People rush to implement Html 5/Css 3 but leave Svg & MathMl ou of the pictures...

That's silly

You are right, Webkit being a popular building block needed MathML badly, but Firefox is not a web browser only either .

They didn't turn on MathML by default until they got the HTML 5 Parsing Algorithm sufficiently ready to go:
