Internet Explorer It would appear that Microsoft will finally take standards compliance in the browser world seriously, after dragging its feet for years. Back in November 2009, the Redmond giant already revealed that Internet Explorer 9 would come with CSS3 and HTML5 support, and now the cup runneth over, as Microsoft has requested to join the W3C's SVG Working Group.

And when they do finally ship a reasonably decent browser, most developers won’t have a clue how to target these new capabilities because they’ve been sitting around waiting for 2022 before learning how to do what has already been possible to do in other browsers for years now.

If you haven’t developed something that doesn’t work in IE yet, then you are already behind the times.

I won’t be changing my code to work with IE—I’ll be expecting IE to start working with my code.
