What Will Be the Name of the Next IE?

In a short, but funny post in IEBlog, the official Microsoft blog of the Internet Explorer group, Dean Hachamovitch describes the names they've considered for the next release of IE (version 8):

  • IE 7+1
  • IE 1000 (think binary)
  • IE Eight!
  • iIE
  • IE for Web 2.0 (Service Pack 2)
  • IE Desktop Online Web Browser Live Professional Ultimate Edition for the Internet (the marketing team really pushed for this one ;-)
  • Ie2.079 (we might still use this for the Math Major Edition)
I liked the self humor (and coming from Microsoft, that's saying something).
