Internet Explorer As it turns out, Google's idea of silently and automatically updating web browsers for security's sake is actually a pretty darn good idea - Chrome is pretty much always up-to-date. Microsoft agrees with this, and has announced it's going to automatically update Internet Explorer on Windows XP, Vista and 7.

It depends ... I have zero complaints with IE8.

TBH I can write cross browser CSS without hacks, you know how?

I actually try to understand what the browser is doing instead of throwing a fit and resorting to an alternative stylesheet. After a while you actually know what it is doing pretty quickly and how to fix it.

IE6 and IE7 where the topics of conversation. IE8 has been pretty good so far for us also. And no fits needed to fix things either.

And as I keep saying IE7 isn't as bad in anyway shape or form as IE6. There aren't major problems like Alpha Image Loader and HasLayout problems are rare.

But you guys just keep saying "It is really hard", yet I haven't actually seen any decent explanation of what you think the major stumbling blocks are, you can easily to HTML5 with boiler plate included.
