The #IfIHadGlass explorer program is going strong, and the product is attempting to prove its usefulness in a bunch of different markets. In fact it may be starting to feel overblown and even tiresome. But if Google is going to bank on…

Microsoft has spoken: Internet Explorer 10 will not run on Windows Vista—not in its developer form now, nor when the software ships later. Meaning they're officially the first browser developer to drop support for Vista. Ironic. [ComputerWorld]
Microsoft's latest History of the Internet promotion is a pretty lame, VH1esque mashup of various b-list comedians cracking jokes—until those comedians talk about Internet Explorer 8's new In Private Mode.
Microsoft seems like the last one to the new browser party that's dragged out over the last month, but they are the first to make their entrance final with Internet Explorer 8.
Microsoft's "compatibility list" of sites that don't render correctly in Internet Exploder 8 RC1—requiring some non-standards mojo from the browser to look right—numbers some 2,400. They're off-the-beaten-path sites like Amazon, Google, Microsoft and YouTube.
