Internet Explorer There's a bit of a ruckus on the web about how Microsoft was supposedly cheating when it comes to Internet Explorer 9's performance on benchmarks. Digitizor, as well as some enterprising readers over at HackerNews, came to the conclusion that Microsoft included code in IE9 specifically to ace the SunSpider benchmark. I was ready to write a scathing article about this, - until I loaded up the IEBlog. As it turns, it's not cheating, it's not a bug - it's an actual piece of smart code optimisation other browsers don't have yet.
