IE6 & IE8 Compatibilities
Microsoft has added a “standards [in]compatibility list” to Internet Explorer 8. The purpose of the list will be such that when a user visits one of the sites IE8 will automatically switch to “IE7 compatibility mode” (or something to that effect) to render the page. Frequently noted is that “microsoft.com” itself is on the incompatibility list.
Also in Internet Explorer-related news, an exceptionally large list of frequently visited news sites in Norway have begun to display notices to IE6 users that they should upgrade to a newer browser, some even suggesting alternatives to Internet Explorer altogether.
