Internet Explorer In a recent blog posting, Internet Explorer's lead program manager Chris Wilson revealed many of the technical improvements that Microsoft will add to IE 7.0 for its final release. Almost all the improvements are related to bugs in IE's implementation of CSS. Many of these bugs aren't fixed in the currently available IE 7.0 Beta release. Wilson's post raises some serious questions about IE 7.0.

As a web developer, I completely disagree.

IE is a piece of garbage and needs to be thrown away. I don't care if doing so required me to rewrite every piece of code I've ever written. Throwing IE out is the only way to go.

Microsoft needs to properly support web standards (in particular CSS) and to retard their dumb tendency to put proprietary junk in their web browser.

A web browser should be like a phone. Add whatever features you want (tabs, gestures, Javascript debuggers, themes, DOM browsers, etc.) but the redering of a page should be standards-compliant across the board. If it isn't? Junk it!
