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?

Afaik, the best method to sniff for IE is conditional comments.

CODE
<!--[if IE]>stuff goes here<![endif]-->

The nice thing is that you can sniff out only certain versions of IE, so you could just change the code to <!--[if IE lte 7]> for when IE8 comes out with their full acid2 compliance.

Server side sniffing (like the php code above) can break when users spoof user agents (a lot of opera users do), and client side js checks fail if people have javascript disabled.

There's also a library by Dean Edwards that makes IE behave a lot more like other browsers here, but it relies on javascript and it's known to slow down pages in IE.

Well for one of the crappy concerts I was talking about, I did pay, so technically they were pros >_<

Anyways, I didn't think these two were too bad (at least from these videos), but then again, I'm very lenient when it comes to music.
