Have you been wondering what Microsoft's Internet Explorer team has been up to after the IE6 launch and why Microsoft has so suddenly decided to speed up development of its Internet Explorer 7?
In short: what has the IE team been doing since IE6?
Over on the Microsoft Developer Internet Explorer blog, Dean Hachamovitch feels your pain. "I want to acknowledge that we have a problem if people are asking this question," writes Hachamovitch who runs the IE team on the IEBlog.
"Listing what we’ve done or our priorities will help but won’t address the problem. Responding to specific questions with a great product and great documentation (for developers, for IT professionals, for deployment specialists, and for other customers as well), and doing that consistently for as long as we’ve been quiet about IE will help more."
The team has been busy with new projects such as MSN Explorer and the MSN toolbar, as well as creating updates that shipped in SP1 and SP2, and updates for Tablet and Media Center PCs. And of course there were countless security holes to be patched in IE5, IE5.5 and IE6.
Thank you Microsoft for embracing blogs. We never would have gotten an answer direct from the source and honest as this one otherwise.
