IE 8.1 Features Leaked

Smashing Magazine has a story about the new version of IE (8.1) they’ve had a chance to look at:

  • Firefox Extension support
  • Better Acid 3 Support
  • Fastest javascript engine.  (You think maybe they are finally compiling?)
  • Render in Firefox or Safari mode as well as multiple IE versions
  • Server Side code decompiler.  No. Seriously! See the code that is running your favorite web site.  And this will open up a whole new opportunity for code obfuscators.
  • And website skins.  Don’t like how a site looks?  Reskin it.  What a concept.
