The Future of Internet Explorer is Firefox

If you do any website development, and have ever experienced a compatibility issue with Internet Explorer, then this article will be interesting to you. Mozilla is working on getting both the canvas element and Tamarin supported natively in Internet Explorer through ActiveX controls. While the Ars Technica article doubts that many will install such plugins, a few big backers, such as Adobe or Google could make a major change in the web browser landscape. Imagine if the Google Toolbar came bundled with additional controls to fix IE's broken CSS, add support for tags and selectors Microsoft decided not to implement, and speed up Google Maps to boot (by avoiding the ExCanvas library). Exciting work!
