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."

Amazing how you give Firefox a free pass on the issue of CSS2 bugs to which there is a hell of a lot more than Internet Explorer 8. If you look at Microsoft website where they inform you of the latest test Microsoft's browser conforms to CSS2 to the letter - it is hardly the fault of Microsoft that there are crappy developers out there who have been using these features incorrectly and the established browsers compensating for it. Yes I have done web development and Internet Explorer 9 is a huge leap over previous versions. Are there bugs? sure there are but I'm sure as hell not going to start bashing Internet Explorer 9 whilst ignoring the massive bugs that webkit and Firefox have.

I'm not rooting for an 'underdog' company - what pisses me off are people who are deliberately disingenuous with the facts. I've got problems with Internet Explorer 9 but I sure as hell don't start lying about non-existent problems simply to generate web traffic. Stick the facts and show that you actually give a crap about improving the situation by reporting the bugs instead of using a blog as a platform which benefits no one at the end of the day.
