Its name was Internet Explorer 6. Now that weâ€™re in 2011, in an era of modern web standards, itâ€™s time to say goodbye.
IE9 is definitely better than IE8 and a step in the right direction, but I don’t believe it to be a truly modern browser, and let me tell you why.
Back in November, spoon.net removed their sandboxed IE browsers, leaving web developers everywhere rather unsatisfied. As many know, the spoon.net sandboxed browsers were the most reliable browsers, aside from using IE versions in separate VMs. It has now been three months and we’ve seen no movement from Spoon or MSFT. So, it’s time to share these. Internet Explorer 6 Internet Explorer 7 Internet Explorer 8 These are sandboxed exe’s from when spoon.net was Xenocode. You can run them in parallel. They are functionally identical to the true browsers.
The Sixth Platform Preview of IE9 includes support for CSS3 2D Transforms. Similar to the use of â€śmsâ€ť in the Web Timing APIs, the 2D Transforms properties begin with â€“ms: -ms-transform and â€“ms-transform-origin. This post explains the purpose of vendor prefixes, how we decide when to use vendor prefixes, and how we recommend developers treat these properties.
Simply put, IE9 is the best browser Microsoft has ever released. Has it caught up to Chrome, Firefox and Safari? No. But that doesnâ€™t matter. Itâ€™s still light years ahead of any other version of IE. All of us should be praying every day for IE users to upgrade to it as soon as possible.
This index lists all the supported Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) attributes by category, and indicates the version of Windows Internet Explorer in which the attributes were first available.
[..] a case where an IE6-only stylesheet included with a conditional comment blocks the downloads in IE8. Whaaat?
clearfix is a CSS technique used to contain floats with no structural markup.
I was looking for a plug-and-play script that enables CSS3 :nth-of-type and other CSS3 selectors in Internet Explorer. John Ressigâ€™s Sizzle is, well, incomprehensible to me (at least) and the mighty Dean Edwardsâ€™ IE7/8 scripts donâ€™t (yet) support the CSS3 selector types I need.
Internet Explorer is a browser developed by Microsoft. Windows Internet Explorer (formerly Microsoft Internet Explorer) is based on the Trident render engine, which does not follow the W3C Web Standards. Internet Explorer Collection contains multiple IE versions, which are standalone so they can be used at the same time. Conditional Comments work exactly the same as in the native versions. The original version number is shown correcty in the User Agent string. The version number can be found in the window title too. Internet Explorer Collection also includes the Internet Explorer Developer Toolbar 1.00.2188.0. This Explorer Bar provides a variety of tools which make troubleshooting websites easier. The Internet Explorer Developer Toolbar is compatible with Internet Explorer 5.0 and higher when using Windows 2000 or higher.
By now, most front-end web developers have heard of the Standalone Internet Explorers (Wikipedia article). Although these are incredibly useful, theyâ€™ve always been hacky at best.
IE AlphaImageLoader, Transparent PNGs & Links It’s long been known that IE6′s support for alpha-blended PNGs is non-existent. An alpha-blended PNG will not blend at all, and you’re left with a horrible grey background where your nice blending and/or transparency should be.

Almost exactly eight years ago, Jeffrey Zeldman wrote To Hell With Bad Browsers, in which he implored web developers to start ignoring Netscape 4 because its standard support sucked majorly. Yesterday several large Norwegian sites placed a warning against IE6 on their pages.
Newer breeds of browser such as Firefox and Safari have offered support for PNG images with full alpha channel transparency for a few years. … With IE7 winning masses of users from earlier versions over the last year, full PNG alpha-channel transparency is becoming more of a reality for day-to-day use.
Waaaaah! Waaaaaah! You hear that? Thatâ€™s IE6 whining about how you should be using an obtuse â€śfilterâ€ť attribute, causing all those nice, pretty pngs on your page to go whacky.
