One of the issues being raised by some of the IE7 users or even me, is that some of the sites showed in IE7 looked really bad but not with IE6. The reason?
"The reason was that the sites had worked around IE6 issues with content that – when viewed with IE7’s improved Standards mode – looked bad." as stated in microsoft blog.
This is the technical challenge IE team is working on, because for sure what had happened with IE7 and 6 will do the same with IE 8.
"In other words, the technical challenge here is how can IE determine whether a site’s content expects IE8’s Standards mode or IE7’s Standards mode? Given how many sites offer IE very different content today, which should IE8 default to?"
Truely, as a user, i do not like to work with IE7 around, i'd rather love to use IE6 than that. But if this IE8 will work great, why not? Let us give Microsoft a chace.. (lol)..
