Microsoft Admits Internet Explorer Mistakes
Bill Gates admits that he made a mistake in waiting to build new innovations in its own browser technology, Internet Explorer. Now Microsoft is answering that challenge and is already looking ahead to the next two releases of IE. From what I have seen up to now, IE7 isn't that innovative. Tab Browsing, RSS support, Anti-Phishing protections? These features have been included in Firefox for a while, so please don't tell me that IE7 will revolutionize the browser world.
"In a sense we're doing a 'mea culpa' in saying we've waited too long for a new browser release," Gates said during his talk to kick off Microsoft's first show for designers and developers of high-impact Web sites. "We are very immersed in the browser as a platform."
