I can’t even believe I am letting my hopes get this high. Check out this SmashingMagazine article about Internet Explorer 8.1. The thing that pops out, and it pops out ALOT is shown in this picture:
This is GIGANTIC. It is showing support for Firefox add-ins The biggest reason I had internet explorer is because it doesn’t have firebug. If IE8.1 supports Firebug and the web developer plugin, I wouldn’t mind it so much.
Oh, please god, let me have IE8.1 soon to see if this is true.
UPDATE: Although slightly mis-timed…this is an April Fools Joke by Smashing Magazine. Ugh. I am so let down. Good one. You got me.
