Microsoft begs Web devs not to make WebKit the new IE6

Internet Explorer 10 is a fast browser with good standards compliance, and the version of Internet Explorer 10 included with Windows Phone 8 is no exception, as it's almost identical to its desktop sibling. But Internet Explorer 10 has a problem: Web developers don't expect to see it on the mobile Web. The mobile Web is dominated by WebKit-based browsers, and mobile sites tend to be developed exclusively for, and tested exclusively on, WebKit browsers. A similar problem exists for tablets.

Often the development is even narrower; although both Android and iOS sport WebKit-based browsers, iOS is the one that dominates mobile browser usage, and dominates testing as a result.

Microsoft is imploring Web developers to adapt their sites.

O problema neste caso é que os programadores não estão necessariamente a seguir normas...

Não seguir as normas é a norma. Foi assim que a Microsoft "educou" o pessoal 😄

O pessoal continua a programar para browsers, em vez de programar para os standards e depois destes cumpridos, fazer ajustes para uma grande variedade de browsers (não apenas para os mais populares). E quem fala de browsers fala de resoluções, etc...

É bastante irónico, que a m$ esteja agora do outro lado, se não fosse mau para os utilizadores até era capaz de me rir.
