What should Molly do at Microsoft?
As many are no doubt aware, the uncomparable Molly Holzschlag has signed a contract with Microsoft to work on standards and interoperability issues. That does sound like good news, and Molly is getting ready to start her work on… well, what?
One person can only do that much, so Molly needs a little help prioritising and would like to know what the community of standards-aware Web professionals want to see her do at Microsoft.
Many people have already voiced their opinions by commenting on Molly’s post Redmond, Here I Am. Add yours as well.
And what would I like her to focus on? Hmm. Two things come to mind:
- Make whoever is preventing the IE team from really fixing Internet Explorer realise that Microsoft can only benefit from having a browser with state-of-the-art support for Web standards. I think most, if not all, people on the IE team know this, but someone or something is holding them back.
There are so many other things that need to be fixed with Microsoft in the Web standards and interoperability departments, but I think those two would be a good start.
