I'm sure this question has been asked before, but a quick search on google and on here did not yield results so I thought I'd just ask: Why does Internet Explorer/Microsoft ignore web standards?
Is it that hard to keep track of the current web standards and make IE compliant? Are they simply flaunting the fact that they don't have to and will still be "the top" browser?
I'm pretty sure their newest version is supposed to have exceptional support for the current web standards, but it doesn't excuse or explain the obvious blatant disregard for web standards in the past. Have they ever issued a statement about this? Anyone know?
