Surfin’ Safari: ‘Versioning, Compatibility and Standards’

Maciej Stachowiak from Apple’s WebKit team, on why they have no plans to support this version-targeting proposal:

Finally, while we sympathize with the tough road that the IE team has to travel to achieve a high degree of standards compliance, we haven’t really experienced the same problem. The IE team has mentioned severe negative feedback on the IE7 release, due to sites expecting standards behavior from most browsers, but IE6 bugs from IE.

But WebKit already has a high degree of standards compliance.
