Internet & Networking H264 or no, the rest of the world pretty much continues to spin, which also means new iterations of the programs central to this whole debate: browsers. While Google released an ambitious new Chrome beta release, Microsoft shipped the second platform preview release for Internet Explorer 9.

Support for standards continues to increase as well - the Acid3 score in this second preview is 68, up from 55. Internet Explorer 8 only scores 20.


20. Seriously, isn't that a shame! when at the same time other current browsers are above 90. I may be mistaken but hasn't Opera reported a perfect 100 in the past months?
While writing this comment, I just checked on fr.wikipedia, that 20 is lower than the score of any other browser's (except IE 7.0... of course) latest stable version by march 2008. What's the problem with Microsoft?

Just to be nasty:

The new Google Chrome beta [...] You can now also install and use extensions while in private browsing mode.

Nobody patented "private browsing"? Too bad!

Vive Opera!
