Internet & Networking Apparently, Internet Explorer is on its way out. JCXP.net is saying that Internet Explorer 8 will be the last traditional version of Microsoft's web browser, and that Microsoft's next web browser will be based on a promising Microsoft Research project dubbed "Gazelle".

Not another rendering engine!

If this is true, I just hope it doesn't feature a new rendering engine but uses Webkit, Gecko or Presto as otherwise hell will break loose again for web developers.

Using an existing engine or writing something in house is just fine provided they actually stick to the HTML standards. I'm less concerned with how it's done just as long as the web content is independent of the browser used to view it; the same page should display the same way across browsers.
