Internet Explorer

Based on your feedback, we pursued a web experience for IE users consistent with what is available on iOS and Android devices - even where this meant we would be adding non-standard web platform features. We believe that this is a more pragmatic approach to running today's less-standardised mobile web.

Thank you, web developers, for turning mobile Safari into the new Internet Explorer. Have you people learned nothing?

The ones that turned webkit into IE6 are dumb web developers. Seems the new ones are just as stupid as the old ones that created the the "optimized for IE6" sites.

Rendering bugs and behaviour that is not in the spec should be reported as bugs not "optimized for".

You never lose a moment to spread the word of the Redmond Bullshit Bible, do you?

Are you fucking retarded? Serious question, because that was a useless comment.

Let's unpack for a second what you're saying:

1. You blame web developers for taking advantage of the platform given to them, and then implicitly expect them to understand the nuances of the various standardizations efforts underway. Not going to happen.

2. You blame Microsoft for being pragmatic in the face of a broken web. A web that was broken by competing vendors, and who have not shown ANY willingness to solve the problem.

Apple OPPOSES the Touch Event W3C Recommendation. Opposes. There is no concerted effort to remedy this.

Microsoft had to implement this non standard behavior, because Apple (and the iPhone's clout) have completely fucked the mobile web.

So no, go fuck yourself. I deal with this shit everyday.

Whoa there shill, remember all that money you're being paid to spread the good word of Microsoft.

Btw, what is so special about the name "Nelson" at MS? I just don't get it. "Major Nelson" is the main shill for the Xbox division and here we have a lowly professional bullshitter with the nick "Nelson" on the OSNews forums.

How much work do you have to put in to get to the rank of "Major".

Is that like a special name for the MS shill squad or what?
