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."

But the bigger picture is that as a share of total web traffic


That says nothing about how much people are browsing the web. Video takes a lot more bandwidth than browsing. The bigger picture is that people are using the internet more for video instead of cable or rentals.

leaving the desktop PC in the basement to gather dust, the HTTP browser will join the usenet client on the garbage heap of discarded software.


More 'desktop is dying' wishful thinking. Web browsing will actually increase as more consumers get faster connections and better computers.
