Same Markup: Using , , and

September 4th, 2010

On this blog we’ve repeatedly discussed enabling the “Same Markup” for Internet Explorer 9.

The main character Marty McFly travels 30 years back in time, only to find that his house hadn’t been built yet, skateboards hadn’t been invented and nobody had ever heard rock ‘n roll. Looking…

Add-on Performance part 2: Helping consumers make informed decisions

September 1st, 2010

The platform previews show the focus in IE9 on performance, interoperable HTML5 through same markup, and hardware acceleration. We’ve also posted here about the work we’ve done with add-on developers, and we shared some data about add-on performance and how we measure it. In this post, we cover more of our thinking about measuring add-on…
