Surprise: Outlook 2011 renders emails using Webkit

Are your feet cold? Mine are, I think it’s because hell just froze over.

9to5Mac has the goods:

A little tidbit from the Microsoft gathering this evening.  While demonstrating Outlook for Mac and the HTML rendering engine, Microsoft employees revealed that instead of using the Word HTML rendering that previous versions of Mac Office used (and the PC version as well), Microsoft has moved over to Apple’s Webkit rendering engine to render HTML mails.  Outlook 2011 also uses WebKit to create HTML mail.

Coupled with the recent announcement that they were moving Windows Live Spaces to WordPress, I think Microsoft has managed to surprise me twice in one month.

The fact that Microsoft is actually using open source code in products is a great start, one can only hope they’re contributing back.

Microsoft Office 2011 for Mac will be released tomorrow.
