  • Blog Post: What I think about ES4.

    Dean Edwards asked me in a comment on the IEBlog what I personally thought of the ES4 proposal . ( 'You say that "Microsoft" think that the web is best served by the creation of a new language.

    …HA! Gotcha! I’ve been juggling multiple roles on the IE team for a while.
