General Development "Everyone seems to have a replacement for JavaScript - Google even has two. Now Microsoft has revealed that Anders Hejlsberg has been working on a replacement and it has released a preview of TypeScript. TypeScript is open source - Apache 2.0 license - and a superset of JavaScript. As you would expect from a Hejlsberg language it incorporates type checking, interfaces and lots of syntactic sugar."

There is nothing wrong with IE8. Until Firefox 3.0 (I think) it was doing a better job of being Standards compliant.

That doesn't really add up: Firefox 3.0 came out in 2008, IE8 in 2009.
