IE8 and its Meta Tag

Internet Explorer 8 will be shipped with a optional Meta tag that will evoke a “Super Standards” Mode, If “we” (web developers) simply add this tag to our head sections then IE8 will transform into the new mode. IE8 now has 4 different modes but they have re-written the rules and decided to not fully document switch IE8. Get your IE8 answers from ALA by Aaron Gustafson.

  1. wow at last its about time IE had something like this, the only problem is half the world are already using broken browsers and I cant see everyone jumping ship to IE8 when it comes out plus I’m guessing in there wisdom that M$ will only release IE8 to vista. Let’s just hope that firefox maintains pace.

  2. IE 8 will be nothing special firefox will prevail.

  3. very intresting! thanks for the post but i agree with prydie firefox is the way to go!

  4. That’s a good news for IE 8 but I’m not sure that it will have the expected results. Firefox is still much better choice for web developers!

    Internet Explorer 8 is the last version of Internet Explorer to be supported on Windows XP and Windows Server 2003; the next version, Internet Explorer 9, is supported only on Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008 R2, and Windows 7 operating systems..:,..
