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 tried the test page in chrome and it doesn't actually work. Sure, the index renders correctly, but the page flips don't work. I think the webkit specific properties are what are doing the page flips. So, I think what he really means to be complaining about is that the basic page itself doesn't render properly.

Shouldn't any other browser trying to render the same page just ignore the webkit specific properties and basically be able to render the same index assuming the CSS was done correctly?

If that is the case, then even firefox doesn't render this page correctly. Which might mean that his code is incorrect, and is relying too much on webkit specific properties for basic page layout regardless of the fancy flip stuff.
