A call-to-action has come from the Microsoft Internet Explorer team.
The article requests that webmasters look over their code to check that existing IE-only hacks will not break their sites when IE7 is released.
This is actually quite a good thing, for multiple reasons.
- Microsoft is now actually speaking to the developers of websites, warning them about what they will be breaking.
- The very fact that they are not trying to be backwards-compatible with their past mistakes is a very important improvement!
Personally, I prefer Firefox and Konqueror for my everyday work, but well done for the improvements so far, and good look with IE7.
It is unfortunate that the solution they recommend involves bloating sites’ HTML, though.
