Internet Explorer "It seems Microsoft is putting IE8 development into gear. Participants of the Windows Server 'Longhorn' beta program on Microsoft Connect have just received an email notifying them that a new survey for Internet Explorer 8 has been published on the program site. The survey contains a few questions on the current usability of IE7 and asks the users what new features they would like to see in IE8. The survey also asks users to rank the importance of several planned features. The email mentions that the survey should be completed before Thursday, March 1st, 2007; giving us a vague peak at the timeline for IE8."

Amen to that!

So long as we don't have to start importing a CSS file for IE5.5, IE6, IE7 and the soon to be IE8. Just fix the browser, even if it means breaking things to become a better browser, just give people enough time to do it, and do it.

Timeline: March 1st, Survey Ends. March 2nd, IE8 released and pushed out to clients.

Agreed. CSS support, passing the acid2 test would be good.

SVG support would also be most welcome.

I'd like the same thing from Firefox, Opera, Safari and Konqueror.
