How do we make Internet Explorer 8 into a modern-day, standards-compliant web browser?

Recommended Posts

How do we make Internet Explorer 8 into a modern-day, standards-compliant web browser with H.264 video and AAC audio? I know we need to add new code to it, such as IE9.js, jQuery, Selectivzr, Modernizr, and/or CSS3Pie.

Which of these scripts do we need? What do these scripts do the same and differently?

Do we just copy the code into an existing IE8 file, or new Notepad file? If an existing file, which? If a new file, what should we name it? Does the filename even matter? Where should the file be placed to work?

Honestly, THIS WOULD BE A SUPER DIFFICULT TASK TO DO!

It's not as simple as just changing a small portion of code in IE 8, it would require you to write large new bits of code and you'd probably have to rewrite a good portion of the code anyways. It would be much simpler to do something like use Chromium or Firefox source code and make it look like IE 8

... or you know, we could make IE 8 compliant by making all the websites to comply to it's standards

Move the mountains rather than digging the cave so to speak, I like it. :cool:

There used to be Web Rings on various topics that a site could join by adding a footer to their pages that linked to the Next or a Random site in the ring as well as to a hub or index page for the ring. Now there are Social Media bars to register a page on popular destination sites and other site aggregators. Perhaps an IE8 web-ring hub can be created that compatible sites can link to. IE8 users could also tag any compatible sites they come across.

If even Microsoft did not manage do that, we surely won't be able to do that. Just do like me: let Internet Exploder die. And laugh at it like Joker.
