Hacker Poll: What Do You Think of Internet Explorer 9?

Internet Explorer logo 150x150 “People don’t remember this, particularly web developers, but there was a time when Microsoft made the best web browser in the world,” JavaScript guru Douglas Cockford said in an interview at InfoQ late last year. “IE 6 was by far the best and continued to be the best browser in the world for many years after, but the other browser makers have all gotten ahead of them. And there is a chance that with IE 9 Microsoft might get that back.”

IE6 may have been the best browser of its time when it was released, but it was never the most standards compliant. And the damage it did to web development as a whole is immeasurable. Microsoft is trying to make amends with Internet Explorer 9, its most standards compliant browser yet.

However, there are some issues with last week’s release candidate. The Register takes a look at some non-standards compliant tags in IE9 and wonders if it’s going to be IE6 all over again.

Have you taken a look at the new browser? What do you think?
