Har du inte läst denna underbara artikel av Joel Spolsky så är det dags nu. Han förklarar, på ett lättfattligt och humoristiskt sätt, Internet Explorer 8 och webbstandard… Eller är det en standard…? 😉

You’re going to tell your friends, “Don’t upgrade to IE 8. It messes up every page, and Google Maps doesn’t work at all.” Are you going to View Source to determine that website X is using nonstandard HTML, and Google Maps doesn’t work because it is using non-standard JavaScript objects from old versions of IE that were never accepted by the standards committee?
