IE7 and XMLHttpRequest 3

Over at the IE Blog:

IE 7 implements a native XMLHTTPRequest object for Javascript applications, instead of requiring an ActiveXObject to be created. This also means XMLHTTPRequest will function on machines that have ActiveX disabled.

Thank you Dean.

    I think you misunderstood our IM conversation this morning. ALL of the credit goes to Chris Wilson and team. I did nothing but request a cheque. ;-)

    Then I did misunderstand you. I thought you filed an RFE for this?

    Good news! =)

    But how about DOMDocument? XSLTProcessor? DOMSerializer? I think XmlHttpRequest isn’t enough to cover all our wishes.
    Also, what about “extensible objects”? I mean… Node, HTMLElement, Array, String, etc? Will all they be available for us?

    I still think IE7 needs more base support instead of implementing stuffs that will be useless if no basic support is provided.
