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.

This is OT so I'll keep it short 'n' sweet. I've been a long time lurker on osnews and never have I seen someone presume they have the right to talk to another human being like that.

Yes you have a difference of opinion, yes you have some good points - I presume (I don't care to read anything else you write). But with that attitude you just lost the argument.

Please for the sake of a fantastic tech community and news resource, try to treat people with respect, or if that's beyond you. Just go away.

...

"LOL!"
