Interoperability and Compatibility

  • Matthew Crowley


I’ll say it again: web development is hard. Those invested in web applications are in a constant struggle to deliver stellar functionality and meet design goals, all the while flying into a headwind of cost and effort caused by browser differences and endless compatibility scenarios. Web standards are helping to mitigate the problem, and IE 8’s improved standards support can reduce the cost of developing sites that are compatible across modern browsers. IE 8 also offers a number of compatibility features that help ensure existing applications continue to work properly, giving you time to migrate applications to a standards-based model as needed.
