After years of veiled and even outspoken criticism from browser makers and many web developers, Microsoft has decided to start supporting the proposed HTML 5 standard in its Internet Explorer web browser. While known for its spotty support of even ratified standards, Internet Explorer has been moving in the right direction in recent years with IE 7 and the new IE 8. The current HTML 5 draft brings a number of advanced features and improvements and has seen great support from Google, Mozilla and Apple.
