Windows 7: IE9 Closer to Firefox, Chrome, Opera than to IE7

IE9 Closer to Firefox, Chrome, Opera than to IE7

The evolution of Internet Explorer has brought the next iteration of the proprietary browser from Microsoft closer to rivals from Mozilla, Google, Apple and Opera, while taking it further from predecessors such as IE7 and IE6. This is the Redmond company doing its best to embrace the other side of the barricade in terms of modern web-standard support, interoperability and same markup. Internet Explorer 9 will be on par with rivals such as Firefox, Chrome, Opera and Safari, and will bridge the interoperability gap that separated releases such as IE7 and IE6 from competitive browsers.

As a direct consequence of this, Dean Hachamovitch, general manager, Internet Explorer, asked developers to not treat IE9 differently from how they would treat Firefox, Chrome or Opera, but definitely different from IE7, for example.

Don't understand why people have a problem with IE8 its a great application, doesn't need loads of addons, does its job efficiently, after all its just a tool to connect to the Internet.

If all the others could create a browser that didn't need loads of frills to make it work, just maybe they'd have something to brag about.
