As most developers are now painfully aware of Micrsoft is about to release version 7 of Internet Explorer. The reason for it being a pain in the **s is simple. Just like any release made by Micrsoft the render engine of IE7 has chosen to render just slightly different then for IE6.0
Here are some of the pitfalls I’ve so far discovered, but seriously I’m too lazy right know to fix them.
- It appears that IE7 renders negative offsets different then its predecessor as well as any other browser
- Still manages sizes set in percentages different then Mozilla and Opera 🙁
- Plugins you wrote for enhancing the web experience won’t work 🙁
Big trouble ahead, which is part of the reason for me not to spent to much time on IE7 just yet. I know it will be released in a month or two, but that won’t stop me from ignoring it. For the time being anyway 🙂
