Mozilla, Microsoft, Google, W3C, and Samsung have agreed to collaborate to create cross browser compatibility on MDN.

With this move, developers might now start to feel web development will get easier as this helps brings the major web browser providers together.

The existing cross-browser collaboration already adds valuable content on browser compatibility, and this step should help bring this much closer together. In addition, to reflect the closer collaboration, the MDN (Mozilla Developer Network) will now be renamed MDN Web Docs.

Today, Mozilla is announcing a plan that grows collaboration with Microsoft, Google, and other industry leaders on MDN Web Docs. The goal is to consolidate information about web development for multiple browsers – not just Firefox. To support this collaboration, we’re forming a Product Advisory Board that will formalize existing relationships and guide our progress in the years to come.

Apple seems to always be blatantly absent from these collaborative announcements.

I am founding member of the Opendocument Fellowship, we fought for one standard for all documents, the ODF, got ISO, but MS wanted OOXML regardless so they could control documents. They can never be trusted... and Google is evil now.. they came from Open Source but now capitalists of the worst kind... they hired to many people from MS which affected them.

Like @tangor says: dont hold your breath

Oh great -- Soon we'll have only one browser and only one rendering engine, and we won't ever have to make another choice as long as we live -

As an aside, can you imagine living in a world where everyone is stuck having to use Internet Explorer 6? --
