IE8将是IE的最后一个版本?

国外纷纷传言IE8将是Internet Explorer的最后一个版本,这个猜测来源于Microsoft的CEO Steve Ballmer对WebKit的青睐。不过鲍尔默只是说对WebKit感兴趣,当同时会继续开发浏览器,对其扩展一些私有的特性。

原话:

“There will still be a lot of proprietary innovation in the browser itself so we may need to have a rendering service.”

“Open source is interesting, Apple has embraced Webkit and we may look at that, but we will continue to build extensions for IE 8.”

不过对于IE8的继任者,大家各有猜测。有的人依据上面的话,推测下一个浏览器可能采用WebKit的核心。也有人猜测说传言采用WebKit核心只是一个幌子,实际上可能会采用Microsoft最新研究出来的下一代渲染引擎——Gazelle

据称Gazelle会比Firefox和Chrome更安全,对浏览器插件使用了沙箱(sandbox)机制。不过如果真的要这样做,那是不是意味着现在的ActiveX全部要完蛋了呢?

另外,对于IE要“消失”的评论,国外的web开发者也是非常激动,纷纷表达了对IE的愤怒之情,摘抄几段,更多请见原文后的评论

IE sucks monkey dick! Please let it die ASAP!

I have an opinion on this subject (as well as an asshole):

Fuck Active X

That is all.

I would be extremely glad to see IE go, I don’t care to mention the countless times that I have developed a website with a certain style that is valid XHTML/CSS, tested in FF, Konqueror, Safari, Chromium… All except for IE, I then have to spend another hour working around IE’s incompatibility. It is a pain that only web developers know.

“I, for one, look forward to the possibility of a clean break with IE’s creaky old rendering engine. But I hope the company pays more care and attention to preserving legacy compatibility than it did with some of its more recent OS efforts.”

God, please NO! The compatibility is the reason IE is so shitty today! Clean breaks mean leave the problems behind and replace it with something that actually works.

ActiveX should have been tossed long ago .. say about IE 6?
