    Talking IE8.1 is awesome. I can't wait!

    As some of you might know, IE8.1 will be out this summer and it is a Huge improvement from the current version of IE. IE8.1 has a bunch of new awesome features such as support for Firefox add-ons (Firebug, Web Developer, etc, yeah!), multiple browser rendering engine options. IE8.1 also does a lot better on the Acid3 test and has much better support for CSS3! Microsoft should have done this a long time ago, but better late than never. If you want more info about this, take a look at this article:

    Wow, I just can't wait for IE8.1, finally, Microsoft is back in the game! Happy April Fools!

    I think Microsoft has caused too many web developers misery for too long, more than 6 years of IE6 is just unacceptable. I can never forgive them for this and will stick to firefox thank you very much.

    I did think something was a bit fishy, especially after I read the caption on the JS engine speed graph:
    * Graph created with MS Excel to showcase Microsoft's greatness in the software market
    The algorithm for Mixx was quite odd too
