I am not Wert. I am not Wert. I am not Wert. I am not Wert.

<img src=“http://www.rpgclassics.com/staff/tenchimaru/td.gif”> Epic found a rather neat browser a while ago. It’s like IE, only it has tabbed windows, built in popup-killer, and some other neat stuff. Check it out.


Interesting. :cool:

Boy, the thought of TD as Wert can sure make your head spin. :stuck_out_tongue:

The next time wert brings up something cool that he found, and you make a rude comment, TD, I’m gonna very sad. :wink:

<img src=“http://www.rpgclassics.com/staff/tenchimaru/td.gif”> That’s ok. He never posts about something cool anyway :stuck_out_tongue: And I’ll just skip a time, then.

Pft… It still doesn’t solve IE’s biggest problem…

It’s (very much outdated) rendering engine.

And? It works nicely, and the damn thing is a lot prettier and loads the program faster then either Opera or Mozilla.

Well DUH! Of COURSE it loads up faster - The rendering engine is already loaded on startup, it doesn’t take much to start up a graphical frontend to it. Durr.

But the outdated rendering engine is a real problem for all the web developers in the world who’d like to move on to the far more superior CSS layouts and stuff. The only modern browser that DOESN’T support most CSS level 2.1 features is in fact IE 6, and the features it does support are buggy at best, might cause your page layout to screw up beyond all repair at worst. With Moz, Opera and CSS you can do tonnes of stuff you can only dream about in IE. I’ve seen grown men cry trying to get some stuff that works beautifully in Moz to work in IE. Especially when it comes to positioning.

Don’t get me wrong; I’m not saying that IE is extremely sucky or anything, heck, it was even the best browser when it came, and as far as CSS support goes it’s way better than NN4. But you can feel that it’s 20 months old, and it desperately needs an upgrade soon, else the balance might be tipped towards the good browsers (Moz, Opera, Galleon, Konqueror, Safari, IE for Mac etc - Basicly anything but IE/Win).

If IE7 rendering engine fixes these things, then by all means, I will be the first to congratulate them and claim that IE is a great browser. But until it comes out, us web developers are stuck in the past with a browser that won’t support the standards properly. We’re anxious to start designing with the latest (“widely” supported) webstandards, and the only thing holding us back is IE. Is it strange then that we loathe the IE6 rendering engine?
