Internet Explorer 8 to be standards compliant

Every few years Microsoft announces some new project or technology that makes me think “I think they’ll get it right this time”. Vista, or should I say Longhorn was one of those said examples, until they decided to scrap the new file system they were working on. Internet Explorer 7 also seemed like one of those examples, until the improved compatibility with web standards proved to be disappointing.

And here we are now with Internet Explorer 8, that has already passed the Acid test and aims to be come a fully standards-compliant browser:

We’ve decided that IE8 will, by default, interpret web content in the most standards compliant way it can. This decision is a change from what we’ve posted previously.

Forgive me for being skeptical but you know how the saying goes: “fool me once…”. If Internet Explorer 8 turns out to be as standards compliant as Microsoft claims it will be, and breaks it apart from the Internet Explorer 6/7 line, then I’ll be the first to take off my hat and congratulate them. But until then, or until the first beta is out, I won’t hold my breath.
