Internet Explorer "With the latest releases of Opera, Google Chrome and Firefox continuing to push the boundaries of the web, the once-dominant Internet Explorer is looking less and less relevant every day. But we should expect Microsoft to go on the offensive at its upcoming MIX 2010 developer conference in Las Vegas, where, it has been speculated, the company will demonstrate the first beta builds of Internet Explorer 9 and possibly offer a preview release of the browser to developers. Several clues point to the possibility that the next version of IE will include broad support for HTML5 elements, vector graphics and emerging CSS standards. If Microsoft plays its cards right in Vegas, IE 9 could be the release that helps IE get its groove back in the web browser game."

I suppose we will never know when they do some refactoring, cause you, know, its a damn close sourced product.

Of course the company will be too proud to say they have done a refactoring on it. It was always so great, you know ;)

I just hope IE9 will be a real standard compilance browser.

Indeed, and it's just a good thing they are: Microsoft has been bashed for years about IE so it's good PR for them to publish as much news regarding their ongoing development regards IE, and it's good for developers to know where IE stands so they'll be in a better position to decide what features they can use on their websites and/or web applications.

One thing that's REALLY important about all this: the more standards compliant and the more secure IE becomes the better it is for all those end-users who don't use alternative browsers.
