My Death Explanation Letter

My Death Explanation Letter

It’s often that a programmer will be looking at his or her code for hours on end and finally come to a point where they’re unable to solve the most simple of problems.

This is understandable and most likely the reason IE 9 boasts support for lots of HTML5 specification features, such as audo and video elements, SVG and the HTML 5 canvas bitmap.
