well its been pretty much confirmed the IE 5 we have now is what we got. I doubt that there will be any bugfixes to it either *bah* My personal speculation is that all mac products from MS will suffer a quick death sooner than later. mark my words we are gonna see a "renewed focus on our core market" statement from MS.

I think it's high time that Apple puts together another browser. Just imagine how cool it would be if on the OS X cd, there was an install of a fully-featured, totally customizable, fast as hell, stable, standards-compliant, apple-branded web browser/ftp client.

Apple's good but not that good (sorry). If they haven't started yet then we have a loooong wait.

AHEM...

"During today's WWDC keynote, Microsoft will demonstrate Internet Explorer for Mac OS X, highlighting several cutting-edge, features that take full advantage of the new operating system. More details on IE for Mac OS X will be provided at Apple's Hot News and Microsoft's MacTopia site later today."

Seems M$ had a "different" kind of core market they were focusing on! And they'd better, in case we see Macrosoft, Inc. and Windows OS, Inc. soon. Bwah-ha-ha!

Lon, Internet Explorer will be get the media toolbar and will be carbonized, but that is it. Internet Explorer for Mac is dead.

From MacInTouch:

"The wording in that PR release you got is eerily similar to a message Irving Kwong (MS PR) posted to the MacIE-Talk list earlier. Note the careful wording in that message. Technically it's true that they are still working on Mac IE because there will be at least one more release which uses the Carbon APIs. So, even though it's pretty much done and being held for the OS X release, the team is _technically_ still working on it on the side. That release will also include the media toolbar that got yanked at the last minute due to licensing issues. But that's the end of the line. No 5.5, no 6.0. Glad to finally get this off my chest."
