We’re pleased to announce that today we’re launching a new Internet Explorer blog as part of the Windows family of blogs
that will cover a broad range of industry and business topics to complement the existing Internet Explorer Engineering blog
Since 2004, the Internet Explorer engineering team has been keeping a blog on MSDN: http://blogs.msdn.com/ie
where we’ve been covering the development and release of new versions Internet Explorer. Our Internet Explorer Engineering blog will continue to be the definitive place you’ll hear about release milestones
, our engineering point of view on topics like video codecs for HTML5
, how we’re implementing standards
, how and where to file bugs
and detail on how we design and implement specific browser features
. It is the quintessential voice of the team building Internet Explorer.
Here on the Exploring IE blog we’ll be covering topics we don’t usually cover on the engineering blog to give a broader context to the work we’re doing with customers and partners around Internet Explorer:
- The Business of the Browser: where we’ll cover some of the interesting trends and discussion topics that surround the browser business. We’ll also provide our point of view on relevant industry discussion topics – for example the recent privacy discussion that resulted from Facebook’s changes to their privacy controls are a good opportunity to share how we think about privacy with Internet Explorer.
- Around Internet Explorer: where we’ll cover what’s going on around the Internet Explorer business. We’ll cover things like our recent partnership with MySpace and let you know when you can find people from Internet Explorer out on the road and at events like TechEd, MIX, SXSW.
- Internet Explorer Around the World: the core Internet Explorer team is based in the US but we’ll share some of the neat things happening with Internet Explorer around the world. For example, did you see the IE Experts campaign run recently by our German subsidiary : www.IE8experts.com
- Tips and Tricks: where we’ll cover some of the ways you can customize and tweak Internet Explorer.
There are some topics which will continue to be covered elsewhere, although we’ll be sure to post links to articles that pertain to Internet Explorer:
On Exploring IE you’re going to hear from several members of the Internet Explorer team, including frequent guest posts from our industry partners and the Internet Explorer community.
Please participate in the discussion by posting in the comments. We’ll be moderating comments using the same basic policy
we use for the Internet Explorer engineering blog. In addition to that policy we ask that you keep your comments on topic.
The team and I are excited to start the conversation.
Senior Director, Internet Explorer Business and Marketing
