A world built on rules

From this article,

http://www.theregister.co.uk/2007/05/01/internet_explorer_standards/

I quote:

"It's challenging for us to support standards," Wilson said. The "core of Trident is great code".

...I don't get it. How can it be great code if it doesn't work as it should? Maybe they should re-brand it as something other than a web-browser? I can only imagine how the opt it would go...

**Installed IE 8.0**
Do you want to opt in for standards? ..Yes
.."Where did the web go??

I think a good way to look at the way Microsoft looks at the way it designed this great code is to paraphrase an old slashdot comment:

"I've seen Firefox punch through a concrete wall. Men have emptied entire clips at it and hit nothing but air, yet its strength and its popularity are still based in a world that is built on rules. Because of that, they will never be as strong or as fast as IE can be."

Comments:

So does that make IE better or is it still true that standards support is more important than absolute performance?

Although the new scripting engine from those nice people at Adobe has made Firefox 3 really fast - and still with debug code in it and 8 months of development before release, so maybe you can have your standards cake and eat it ;).

You can, Opera seems to be faster than both firefox and IE (in all the tests I've read), and has passed all those wonderful tests the internet boys drew up. Sadly not yet in the commercial repository for feisty.
