Jeffrey Zeldman asks some very good questions about the impact of no new IE for the Mac OS and how that relates to the recent AOL deal with MS.
My hope is that eventually the open source efforts at browser development will benefit from this but, as Jeffrey points out, the AOL/MS deal is a powerful jujitsu move on support for Mozilla (which is funded via AOL currently).
Web designers have to track this kind of stuff so they are aware of what browsers they will need to code for in the future. Anything that looks like it won’t lead to greater standards adoption is a bad thing.
The browser war on the Mac side is between Mozilla and Safari (Apple’s new browser). I suspect Safari will win–it integrates the OS X look and feel better than all the other Mac browsers.
Nice Klog. Like it!
