Internet & Networking Every now and then, you get these news item that make you feel like something's wrong. The item doesn't make sense, shouldn't be possible, and yet it is. Despite Microsoft's newfound commitment to web standards, it's still incredibly unnerving to see things like this - the W3C's first HTML5 compliance test, in which Internet Explorer 9 Platform Preview 6 outdoes all other browsers.

However it does matter when you come to improving the website.


Like I said, only webdevs will care about that kind of thing ;) Most of the rest of the world isn't going to choose a browser based on how well it scores on some compliance test or benchmark, unless it happens to be a LOT faster than its closest competitor. Even then, it still might not get the nod from many users, if it's lacking in features and/or has a crappy UI.
