Internet Explorer As predicted, more Microsoft news from MIX10, and this is some big stuff: Internet Explorer 9. As we all know, Microsoft really let Internet Explorer rot away, allowing competitors to make much better browsers with better standards compliance and performance. With IE9, Microsoft is aiming to not just close that gap - but to overtake the competition. Update: Ars has an in-depth look at the platform preview.

You've got some good points but to be honest it doesn't matter if IE gets 80% market share on the desktop anymore. More and more of web browsing is being done on portable devices and there is no way in hell developers are going to code for solely one platform anymore.

Windows Phone 7 sounds great and all but it would have to be amazing to take over the phone space. RIM in the enterprise space and Apple for consumers, with Android making steady headway, it would be crazy to develop a website for a non standards complaint browser anymore.
