In the past few months there has been a lot of debate on the web about the support that Internet Explorer 8 provides to web standards. Chris Wilson has an excellent post debating the motivation behind the final decision of providing an opt-in flag to indicate IE8 that it should behave in NON-standard compliant mode.

This is why we created aggiorno express for IE8 to help you solve the problem... but let's start from the beginning...

When Microsoft first though of IE8 the idea was to provide a fully web standard compliant browser but they were facing a dilemma. Should the new Internet Explorer be backward compatible with IE7 or should it force the adoption of web standards? To many of us the answer is quite straightforward, let's enforce standards! However this is not that easy when you have such a large installed base as Microsoft has. Microsoft had already receive quite a bit of heat when launching IE7 for breaking compatibility with IE6 and therefore causing many pages to render incorrectly. The initial decision from Microsoft was to leave IE8 by default compatible with IE7, i.e: NON standard compliant! If a web developer new its pages were standard compliant they would need to insert a special flag to tell so to the browser. This initial decision was eventually reversed by Microsoft (with lots of applause from the standards community) and now IE8 by default runs in standards mode.
