Mace to Your Face. MySpace, Facebook – Not Ready for IE8

By | December 6, 2008 | 12 Comments

Ironically, the long awaited IE8 which is supposed to support web standards won‘t display correctly pages like MySpace, Facebook, CNN, BBC and more as they were designed for older IE versions. And as you know, older IE versions simply ignored web standards.

Standards Support

Web developers doomed IE7. Hours of wasted time, checking… Yes, it still breaks a web.

Internet Explorer 8 is their 1st correct step in building friendly relationships with web developers. Hope it will not break the web (again). Continue Reading

By | March 1, 2008 | 5 Comments

Internet Explorer 8 IE8Not so long to wait. Microsoft expects to release Internet Explorer 8 Beta after Windows Vista Service Pack 1 (SP 1).

Internet Explorer 8 IE8The upcoming Internet Explorer 8 (IE8) new features will be soon announced at MIX 08 (Microsoft Conference, held from March 5 – March 7, 2008).

If you are reading FavBrowser.com blog some time already, you have had a change to check a list of “Leaked Internet Explorer 8” features which didn’t impress me at all. As they will be doing a preview of IE8 as well, I just hope that it won’t crash (like most of the Microsoft products) :-) Continue Reading
