Internet Explorer: Plan to completely support RFC 2616 anytime before the next ice age?

I am writing up a client presentation for next week, and I just realized just how flawed Internet Explorer is. Microsoft claims that the browser is standards compliant. Yet it still doesn't support HTTP pipelining.


And the frustrating part? They won't tell us why. I have my suspicions, which include TCP stack issues and a flawed HTTP handling mechanism that is still based on Windows 95 architecture, but an explanation from Redmond would be nice.


Every (and I mean every) other browser can do this.


Microsoft, it's time you detached your Web browser from your OS, like you've forced everyone else to do.
