About a year ago, I wrote about how Opera helped in forcing Microsoft to default to standards mode with IE8. Apparently, it is not that simple. Through Molly's blog, I found an article about how IE8 will require opt-in for many sites after all. I'm not sure what to make of this, but it does sound like bad news.
And yes, Molly Holzschlag has joined Opera! Most of you no doubt know about her and her work in the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), the Web Standards Project (WaSP), and so on, so an introduction probably isn't needed. It's great to get more people on board who can spend time promoting and pushing for open standards.
