"Microsoft will release the first beta of Internet Explorer 8 in the first half of 2008 that will have full support for web standards"
Yeah right. I'll believe it when I see it. The cake is a lie. [insert your own disbelief cliches here].
After hating and struggling with IE for my entire development life (oh about 11 years) I just don't believe that IE 8 will truly be the holy grail of browsers. Last time I checked, even the uber standards compliant Opera browser didn't pass the standards test. Firefox doesn't but is still closer than IE. There is just no way that they will have, in one year made IE fully standards compliant. And which standards? HTML 5? HTML 4.1 Strict? XHTML 1.0 Strict? XHTML 1.1 Strict? HTML 4 Loose? All of the above?!?
It's just too good to be true...
