If you surf the Internet with various Web browsers, you’ve most likely noticed that Web content may render differently depending on the browser. The older the browser, the longer rendering of the Web content and more potential rough spots with the visual rendering of HTML and image & graphics content. For instance, older version of Internet Explorer browsers tend to render text choppier, making large size HTML text noticeably edgy and funky.
The much anticipated launch of Internet Explorer 9 in 2011 – they just released the beta version – should bring improvements to many common quirks. On September 15, 2010 Microsoft issued a press release detailing their new Internet Explorer browser that will be based more on Web standards: Web coded content should appear more consistent between browsers and the speed of rendering should be faster as well. Microsoft is at least taking promising steps in acknowledging the importance of consistency in the cross-browser user experience.
