Internet Explorer "As a team, we've spent the last year heads down working hard on IE8. Last week, we achieved an important milestone that should interest web developers. Internet Explorer 8 now renders the 'Acid2 Face' correctly in IE8 standards mode." Insert freezing and hell joke.

Meh I pick on you because your posting history indicates that you defend Microsoft with absurd reasoning and claims.

You go to great lengths making excuses for Microsoft. Examples that I recall: You considered anti-competitive suits as a reason for Windows' poor zip performance. That's borderline tin-foil. Then there was that other post attributing Vista's strong anti-piracy features as a reason for Vista's low uptake. If you've been paying attention at all, you'll know that Vista is easier to pirate and maintain genuine validation than in XP.

Just stop and do some thinking and fact-checking before you slag the competition or make your pro-MS posts.

Anyway, I hope IE8 is released for XP and pushed out like crazy like XP SP2. I'm tired of being served substandard support in Outlook Web Access through Firefox and Safari. Hopefully, passing acid 2 is a small portion of what they've done to improve standards support.
