Microsoft has announced they would halt the development of IE for the Mac. Yikes. Who knows how many thousands of developers are left in the cold by this move. I first read it in a WSJ article today, but here's a News.com article on it from yesterday, and the predictable slashdot thread. Interestingly, Microsoft justifies the move because of Apple's Safari browser, but when Apple announced Safari it was clear that they started working on it precisely in case IE for Mac was killed (something that became a more concrete prospect with the "unofficial" news that Microsoft would stop development of IE as a separate product for Windows).
