Internet Explorer Recently, Microsoft released Internet Explorer 8, which boasted much better standards compliance than previous iterations of the browser. While it passed the Acid2 test, IE8 failed miserably in the Acid3 test, and many people criticised Microsoft for it. Microsoft Australia's Nick Hodge has stated that Microsoft purposefully decided not to support Acid3, because the test tests against draft standards.

So you see what, that is, open source software has more rapid frequency to introduce new features. While it takes years to create a new release for Windows (even for SP), and IE, it takes months for a Linux kernel and open source browser. So if IE left behind at the startup, it never catches up.
