The information published in this post is now out-of-date.—IEBlog Editor, 20 August 2012
I hopefully got your attention with the title of my first post. And it is definitely true for me, as I have loved browsing the web since I started way back in the mid 90s, and I really love browsing with IE. Yet, you may ask who I am or who we are that will be posting on this blog.
I am Scott Stearns, the test manager for the Microsoft Internet Explorer team (as Dean says we will be pulling together full bios of people later). The IE team as we usually say. Some of us have our individual blogs today, but we also wanted to have one that was focused on what we do every day at work – make Internet Explorer the best way for browsing the web. I realize that statement will cause some people to chuckle based on current press on security issues and perceived lack of innovation, but that is my job. I have spend the better part of the last year working long hours and weekends to push IE forward with XP Service Pack 2, which is about increasing security while balancing application compatibility, but that is not all.
If you want to try out the latest IE browser, I strongly encourage you to download and run the latest release candidate for XPSP2 Service Pack 2. You can download it here.
