Internet Explorer 7 sucks on standards (Download Squad)

Nov 5th 2006 8:45PM The idea behind the Internet from the beginning has everything to do with community, One of the major principles behind communities of any type is, believe it or not, standards. This helps make everything better for everybody, leveling out the playing field. The reason behind Firefox, Opera, et al, is to provide a better alternative in terms of what the community needs vs. what one company wants to provide. The company itself acknowledges the need for standards. For you who may not be aware of history, originally when technology standards were developed, there was a "request for comments" which allowed for input from those whose esteemed viewpoint helped to balance ideas. Hope you all can find a place in your hearts for this.
