Internet Explorer "There, I said it. Microsoft has been bombarding the media with claims about how much better IE9 is than all the other browsers, more HTML5 and CSS3 compliant than any other browser that ever existing and ever will. It's the only browser that passes all the tests they made up. And, Microsoft has finally implemented the CSS3 selectors that were implemented by other browsers back in, what? 2003? Because Microsoft has updated IE to support CSS3 selectors and rounded corners, they want us to believe that somehow IE9 magically supports the whole slew of CSS3 visual styling. I'm afraid it doesn't. As a matter of fact, IE9's support for CSS3 visual styling is so poor that the results are shocking."

Come on, isn't it a bit irresponsible to report this without any kind of caveat? In this case I'd suggest, "The guy's making downright false accusations" as adequate. Having tried that page in Firefox it was more or less the same as IE9. Would anyone say Firefox was well behind CSS3 implementation? This is not news, so should not be linked to by a respected news site.
