Browsers are Hot Again

By | January 16, 2009 | 0 Comments

TechCrunch published an interesting article on the recent “Browsers are Hot Again!” panel. Representatives from Microsoft, Google, Mozilla and Opera were invited.

Here is an excerpt from the article on their vision:

An audience question asked each of the panelists to describe the essence of each browser. The responses were varied. Microsoft’s Hachamovitch said his team starts with looking at what the user wants and building from there (and pointed to IE 8’s impressive feature list). Krogh from Opera said they wanted to supply a standards compliant browser for literally any Internet connected device. Google’s Pichal said speed (of javascript) was their primary goal (Hachamovitch then dubbed him “Mr. Speed” in a later comment). Mozilla’s Shaver said Firefox was about “putting the web first,” and creating a standards-compliant browser in as many languages as possible to ensure that no one was left out of the Internet.

P.S. Internet Explorer 8 RC is going to be released within few weeks.
