Microsoft U-Turn on IE 8 Rendering

Posted by Mark Slocock on 25 March 2008

There has been alot of discussion recently over Microsoft's proposed stance on browser version targetting for IE 8.  Developers have been very vocal against plans to make IE 8 redener in  IE 7 standards mode by default.

I was very pleased to read that Microsoft has decided to do a u-turn on their policy and make IE 8 render websites in the most standards compliant way it can.

This is significant because Microsoft has rarely listed to developers before and becuase IE is the most popular brwoser currently in use, its support of the latest standards (by default) is vital for the progression of web standards.
