There are few things more exciting to a journalist than being among the first to report important news, and we here at LinuxInsider are no exception. So it was with great glee that we learned of recent rumors that Internet Explorer 8 could be the end of the line. Special thanks to Slashdot blogger hairyfeet for calling them to our attention! Yes, there were several such reports circulating on the virtual grapevine in recent days, including Randall Kennedy's post at InfoWorld, Scott Fulton's post at Beta News, iAurora's post at JCXP and others.
I'm not a developer, so I never had to re-write web pages for IE. All the same, I'll be more than happy when the last IE has loaded it's last page. A browser, like any software, should reflect what the USER NEEDS AND WANTS. It is little more than a year ago that IE finally figured out what tabbed browsing is all about, for God's sake! Addons? Where are they? IE8 offers a lame set of "accelorators", that can't begin to compete with Firefox extensions. Someone start a fire, and I'll start gathering all the CD's with IE on them, starting with IE4!
