re: Microsoft Hints At IE10 Release With New Toolkit
This is, without a doubt, some of the best news I've heard all day (well, aside from the latest Java patch).
At this point, I've had to create VMs and testing environments for IE 6, 7 and 8 on Windows 7 and XP so that some of my quality assurance co-workers can test our products on the same platforms that our clients are using. I think Microsoft might be amazed at some of the organizations out there that, as a matter of corporate policy, aren't allowing the latest and greatest version of IE on their client systems.
Personally, I love the "Do Not Track" idea (and the IAB's response) in IE 10, but given all of the initiatives that we are currently working on, adding a full revamp of the MS client-side software stack would be the straw breaking the camel's back.
