It seems that Microsoft has decided to break crappy sites by default now with IE8. Those who wish to use IE7's rendering mode to render their non-standards-compliant site will need to request it explicitely.

Sounds like good news to me! mush1a.gif

=P Firefox ftw! lol, used to be an i.e. user, only use it for reading manga online now. (loads images faster)

Not so sure I agree with the last part, but the beginning is true.

Firefox and Opera are certainly better than IE. IE8's standards mode, and Microsoft's recent take on interoperability sound interesting too. Finally, something a bit more ethical from MS. I hope they'll do it well.

A lot of people are saying that this ultimately had to do with risk management (read: the Opera antitrust allegations in Europe), but it's pretty nice that they decided against releasing something that would work exactly like the previous version out of the box mush1k.gif

Now the million dollar question: will IE8 pass acid 3?

p.s. I still like potatoes.

YES!! Downloading now. I'll provide feedback once I get it installed.

Oh, how disappointing. It doesn't even pass acid2. And it fails acid3 beyond imagination with a score of 17/100.
