Why is IE9 being called a ‘next generation’ browser?

Posted: September 20, 2010 in Computers

Something that’s annoying me to no end in the web development community is all the hype about IE9 and it’s long overdue support of HTML5. Newsflash, you’ve been able to use HTML5 on firefox, chrome, opera and every other modern browser available for years. Internet explorer is in fact what’s been holding back HTML5 for so long, and seeing as they’re not planning for WebM support, they’re already going to be behind the times on on release day. Microsoft, stop bundling your browser with your operating system. You make a sub-par product that regularly holds back the adoption of new standards and refuses to conform to current ones. Just give it up and implement the browser ballot. But this time, do it without IE.
