It has not been a year since Microsoft released Internet Explorer 7 and theyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve already come up with plans for Internet Explorer 8. At the Mix 07 conference, Microsoft said that they will continue to prioritize security and ease of use in the forthcoming Internet Explorer 8 and will seek to improve Web development with current standards compatibility.
According to Internet Explorer platform architect Chris Wilson, Microsoft plans to release Internet Explorer 8 within two year of IE 7Ã¢â‚¬â„¢s release, which means IE 8 is due within the next 18 months. He also pointed that previous version of Internet Explorer strayed from standards and new version of IE 7 have cause some website to fail for end users.
MozillaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Firefox 3 is under development, weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve already seen alpha versions of MozillaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s forthcoming browser and it is due to release by the end of this year. Internet Explorer leads, but Firefox is growing. Inorder to keep the lead, Microsoft should seriously work on adhering to the Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) 2.1 specifications.
