I have been tasked with developing the IE8 action plan for Microsoft New Zealand and I need your help!

Come and see browsers by the numbers, some of the new stuff in IE8 and help me build an action plan on how to rid the NZ of IE6.

I will start with a presentation and demo then take a group discussion.

  • Top couple of NZ Web Sites “Census” May 2008 Including Browsers with > 1% Market Share And judging by the #’s many are still on dial up and XP SP1
  • We Have a Problem! ¼ of Kiwi’s still use IE6! = a sh*t load more than use Firefox (any version)
  • You are not the target market!
  • Intel Mac <3 % of Kiwi’s Vista = 17%
  • It’s an XP game
  •  
  • Those 5 years that you guys did nothing really hurt us!
  •  
  • It Takes On Average... 30% More Effort to Build for IE6! 5% More to Build for IE7 Source... Something I read somewhere
  •  
  • Internet Explorer 8 = Interoperability Over Compatibility Achieved through a new CSS 2.1 compliant Rendering Engine enabled by default as lobbied by Web Developers world wide.
  • Plan of Record
      • IE 8 Beta 1: Released at MIX in April (target audience Developers)
      • IE 8 Beta 2: Scheduled to release August 2008 (Broad Beta)
  • IE8 Rendering NZ Top 30 Websites Visited on average by 1.9 Million People per day Judged by me going and trying them out... Finger in the air type stuff

    • WebSlices
      • Developers can mark parts of the pages as WebSlices using the hAtom and hSlice microformat.
    • “ Activities”
      • uses a simple XML format called OpenService. The main functions of an Activity are:
        • Preview: viewing a mini representation of the service results on hover of the Activity
        • Execute: opening the service in a new tab when the user clicks on the Activity
    • Developer Michael Kaply has created a Firefox version of Activities
    • Daniel Glazman has created WebChunks, a port of IE8's WebSlices feature to FireFox
