With the release of Internet Explorer 9 RC the browser looks to be in a usable state. So far, my experience has been positive.

This is a real pain, especially at sites like Agile Zen, where dragging and dropping is a primary bit of functionality. Now that IE 9 is a release candidate, we’ll see how quickly these things improve. I expect things ...

Here is the email I sent: For developer and QA testing I highly recommend using IE Tester http://www.my-debugbar.com/... It enables testing the website against ...
Came across an interesting post on the Joel Spolsky's blog the other day...Seems like all browsers besides IE use bicubic interpolation for image scaling.. As Joel mentions though, all you need to do is add img { -ms-interpolation-mode:bicu... } to the appropriate section/tag in your cascading style-sheet. Joel also has an example on his blog post if you'd like to see the evidence. Technorati Tags: CSS,Internet Explorer ...
