Internet Explorer Earlier this week, Google launched Chrome Frame, a plugin for Internet Explorer 6/7/8 which replaces the Trident rendering engine with Chrome's rendering and JavaScript engine for better performance and superior standards compliance. Microsoft has responded to this release, claiming it makes Internet Explorer less secure. Note: What database category do I put this in? Internet Explorer? Google? Choices, choices!

Your theory is possible, although the official stance of the IE team is that Acid3 includes requirements that are not yet defined standards (HTML5, CSS3, etc.)

Please read the list instead of quoting Microsoft fud and lies. ACID 3 does neither test for CSS3 nor for HTML5 all it does is to test against existing standards.
One of the reason why Microsoft falls flat for at least 20% is the absolute non compliance to any SVG.
The other 60% simply are bugs or half implemented other standards! The only thing IE8 is really good at is CSS 2.1 compliance, kudos to them that one is really excellent, the rest is still shoddy.
