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.

IE8 is slow, but

it isn't that bad. It tends to run about the same speed as Firefox 2, or the current version of Konqueror. Which, OK, are pretty slow compared to the current state of the art. But nothing monstrously bad. Wait until this time next year, when all the other browsers have had speed updates and people are still using IE8, then it will seem slow.
