IE8 will render standards compliant by default

Writing

This one should be hitting the web big real soon, but according to a very recent post on the Internet Explorer blog IE8 is going to render in standards compliant mode by default and you will have to request IE7 mode with a meta tag! Hurrah! Was this one of the big announcements that they were going to make at Mix that leaked out? Or do they not think that this is hugely important? Well, I for one am extremely thankful that IE8 will attempt to play nice by default and you will have to ask it to be bad.

On a side note, it is about 5:30 am here in Las Vegas and I have yet to adjust to the time shift, hence why I am blogging at 5:30 in the morning.

Loved the article? Hated it? Didn’t even read it?

We’d love to hear from you.
