Internet Explorer 8 taking shape

Web browsers are getting much more attention recently with Mozilla staying on its course to mature its next-generation Firefox broswer and especially Microsoft, which apparently is reaching first significant milestones with IE8. The next Internet Explorer is schedulhed for a H1 2008 released. which is rather surprising as IE7 is just over one year old now and IE6 has been in place for more than five years before the current version's release.

According to Dean Hachamovitch, general manager of Microsoft's IE team, IE8 "correctly rendered" the Acid2 page, which includes reference code to test a browser, on December 12, Microsft considers the Acid2 test as "one of several milstones for the interoperability, standards compliance, and backwards compatibility that [Microsoft is] committed to for this release."
