    Microsoft contributing to WebKit for html neutrality.


    Why is Microsoft contributing to WebKit? - ZDnet

    No, Microsoft isn't planning to dump IE, Chakra and the Trident rendering engine in favour of the otherwise ubiquitous WebKit rendering engine. What it's trying to do is get developers who optimise their mobile websites for Safari and WebKit to start using the HTML5 standards without vendor prefixes, so that IE10 users on Windows RT and Windows Phone get the same experience as iPhone and Android users, not a fallback site that tells you how awful IE is and how you should get a real browser instead.
    I have to say this would be nice. Internet explorer isn't too bad, but there are still a couple things that make it unusable for me. But it's way better than it used to be.

    I remember the days when most websites required Internet Explorer to render correctly. I think Microsoft made standards that other website developers didn't like but had no other choice because everyone used IE. Now that the tables have turned they're complaining. Oh well I don't use IE nor Windows Phone.
