Microsoft Pushes Hard with Internet Explorer 9

By | June 3, 2010 | 22 Comments

It looks like Microsoft IE team tries to do its best to make you forget about Internet Explorer 6/7 mess.

In the recent update (May 2010 IE Platform Preview), it was announced that Internet Explorer 9 is now fully HTML5 and CSS3 compliant, or that’s what MS wants you to think.

According to test results, IE9 was the only browser to pass all HTML5, SVG 1.1 2nd edition, CSS3 media queries, CSS3 borders & backgrounds, CSS3 selectors, DOM level 3 core, DOM level 3 events and DOM level 2 style tests.

Firefox 3.6.3 managed to score 100% in the DOM level 2 style test as well.

Firefox 4 to Have Updated Web Inspector

Back in early days, Firefox used to have a simple DOM Inspector, which was later removed in Firefox 3 and made available as add-on.

Well, for the upcoming Firefox 4 release, Mozilla is planning to bring such tool back and make it a part of web browser again.

While Web Inspector is not intended to replace Firebug, it can be used for basic tasks, such as: elements identification or site structure overview.

Adobe Blocks HTML5

By | February 15, 2010 | 11 Comments

Adobe Blocks HTML5Sometime ago, Adobe Evangelist, Dave McCallister has said, that Adobe is one of the most open companies that are active. Furthermore, Adobe CTO Kevin Lynch claimed that “Adobe supports HTML and its evolution”.

Well, this is no longer a case, as a member of HTML5 group, Ian Hickson said the opposite: “the latest publication of HTML5 is now blocked by Adobe, via an objection that has still not been made public (despite yesterday’s promise to make it so).”

Why would Adobe do that? As new HTML5 canvas element allows adding animation, navigation elements and other interactive content, it is a direct threat to Adobe’s Flash platform.

As company has never launched a true open source project before, there will be a learning curve.

It was also said, that current Opera Dragonfly development is focused on JavaScript debugger improvements.
