Internet Explorer It would appear that Microsoft will finally take standards compliance in the browser world seriously, after dragging its feet for years. Back in November 2009, the Redmond giant already revealed that Internet Explorer 9 would come with CSS3 and HTML5 support, and now the cup runneth over, as Microsoft has requested to join the W3C's SVG Working Group.

I use IE8 on brand new OEM machines I’m setting up for people and 10 seconds to open a tab is not out of the ordinary. It might take you 1 second, but the majority of users don’t get anything like that. The fact is that any other browser is simply faster than IE8 in every department.

As for FF OS X? The trick is to write in FF OS X and fix for Windows, not the other way around. FF/Mac’s rendering is much more accurate (even supporting better ligatures than Webkit).
