What is a Modern Browser? FarukAt.eş, creator of Modernizr weighs in.
The other day, Mozilla Tech Evangelist Paul Rouget explained why he
doesn’t consider IE9 to be a modern browser. The IE team at Microsoft,
to Paul’s critiques, albeit with a bit more marketing fluff than needed.
Very interesting take on the hot topic by the creator of the brilliant “Modernizr”.
In short, his statement is “A modern browser is any browser that: successfully renders a site that you just built using web standards, testing only in your browser of choice along the way, with all the essentials functioning well; without you having written any browser-specific hacks, forks or workarounds; and shows great performance as you navigate it.”
