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."

I am suprised that no one has picked up 2 major flaws in this guys arguement yet.

1. There is no IE9 beta 4, only the first beta is out. (I think he is talking about IE9 Preview 4). So he is either completely incorrect or spreading fud... The important point here is that there are still betas and release candidates to come.

2. CSS3 in IE9 Beta, according to ACID3 meets 95% of the standard. SO, I think its a far streach to say that "IE9 is the IE6 of CSS3". Specially seeming they are aiming for 100% complicance by release.

I honestly think that this artical is just a peice of troll poo.
