Browser Wishlist

Firefox

  • Start supporting border-radius without the -moz prefix.
  • Enable your HTML5 engine by default. (Looks like this will happen for 3.7?)

WebKit (Chrome & Safari)

  • Allow inline svg in HTML5 content, served as text/html.

Opera

  • Allow inline svg in HTML5 content, served as text/html.

Internet Explorer

  • Get IE9 out soon, and magically force all your old browsers to stop existing.
  • IE6 must die
  • IE6 must die
  • IE6 must die

One thought on “Browser Wishlist

  1. Looking back, it turns out most of your items have come true.

    SVG is at a sufficient age that support is being stepped up in major browsers, finally.

    The Firefox 3.7a5 (to be 4.0) nightly is quite nice, still want to see the tab-based progress indicators and shell-based tabs and menus laid out in https://wiki.mozilla.org/Firefox/4.0_Windows_Theme_Mockups, though I’m not sure just yet if or how this will be implemented under Mac/Linux.

    And of course with GMail and YouTube moving forward, IE6 is FINALLY becoming a thing of the past. Even Microsoft is pushing updates to systems using the demon browser. I’ve taken a look at the IE9 preview and things look good so far, eventually bringing HTML5 and CSS3 to the table for the majority user base, which is nice.

    The thing that still ticks me off is the handling of “application/xhtml+xml” which is still prevalent in IE7 and 8. Old news, though.
