Pretty much what I was thinking.  I've been watching the IE team recently
and IE8 is going to be a big step forward standards wise.  A ton of
testcases have been submitted to W3C and I'm actually looking forward to
it.  Considering how bad Firefox 2 was and how good Firefox 3 is, any
competition in the market will be great.
