ie7 Adoption Rate: Faster Than You Think?

“The fantastic Ajax Experience Boston conference just wrapped up. It was an excellent event, attended by well-known industry luminaries alongside young Web developers and designers aching to learn as much as they can about JavaScript, Ajax, Rich Internet Apps, and something that’s made me very happy: A drive to understand great document structure and CSS.

The following transcript and video is an excerpt from Chris Wilson’s presentation. Chris is the Platform Architect for Internet Explorer. Here, he’s discussing why he believes the adoption rate of IE7 will be faster than we might think.

You can enjoy the video I grabbed of Chris presenting this information, in .mov format (2meg), provided here with express permission of Jay Zimmerman on behalf of the Ajax Experience, and Chris Wilson.

There have been three million downloads of IE7 . . . and that’s in the first four days. From that, I think you can probably extrapolate actually the adoption curve is probably going to be fairly steep.”

With so many people out there using Windows I can only imagine how many downloads it will get in a years.

Adobe’s Contribute 4: A kick-ass blogging tool

We’ve been fans of Adobe for a long time — their blogging community on Movable Type is a great look inside one of the largest and most innovative software companies in the world, and of course we’ve worked with their teams in the past to add Movable Type and TypePad template support to tools like GoLive and Dreamweaver.

More on this great sotyr ar there blog but since I am Macromedia Dreamweaver user and everyone in my work group uses the same figured it would be great to spotlight it. My thought no matter who owns the brand Dreamweaver will always be a Macromedia company to me.There will no doubt be more to come as Adobe showcases alot of new products this season and in the coming years.

Tantaks fourth year

“Four years ago today, I started this blog with a very simple entry. Since then, it seems none of the W3C working drafts that I mentioned have made it to Recommendation status which is a bit unexpected to say the least. At a minimum I had expected CSS 2.1 to be further along, though perhaps we all underestimated how many details there were to fix, and recently no thanks to me either as I’ve been too busy with microformats to put a proper amount of time into my CSS working group invited expert duties. ”

Congrats Tantek on your successes!!
