Found this artical at SoftPedia.. Interesting to see what they have in store this time..

You may get to have a look at the future of the Internet Explorer browser sooner than you might think. Although Microsoft is currently lagging behind Mozilla that has introduced Firefox 3.0 Gran Paradiso since early December 2006, third party sources confirm that the next version of Internet Explorer is already cooking in the Redmond labs.

MS cannot just make a standard compliant browser in one version, it would cause way too many problems on the web. The change must be gradual.

As much as I like Firefox, if IE could get inline spell check (either via addon or from the core code) I'd consider switching back full time. I didn't like IE7 at first but it has grown on me.

The firefox thing she keeps comparing IE8 too is wrong....opera, maxaton, etc has all of those too. But yes...when do we ever hear of a browser on the internet that is not called Firefox?

When those browsers actually give Microsoft a run for their money, then they'll get coverage. However to do that they'll need coverage.

Catch 22 ;)
