@Oliyoung on Twitter shared a link from the IE team's blog about what they're focusing on for IE9.

Our focus is providing rich capabilities – the ones that most developers want to use – in an interoperable way. Developers want more capabilities in the browser to build great apps and experiences; they want them to work in an interoperable way so they don’t have to re-write and re-test their sites again and again. The standards process offers a good means to that end.

Two quick thoughts on the subject:

  • I’ll believe it when I see it.
  • Just ditch Trident and adopt WebKit already. All the work has been done for you, no point reinventing the wheel.
