Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y Interesting theory, backed up by data, to explain the difference between Android device sales and browser usage share. "The stock Android browser in previous versions reportedly had problems rendering non-mobile optimized web-pages, leading to lower usage. If a user realized that certain webpages were improperly rendered on a mobile device, it would obviously lead to a drop in future browsing sessions from that device. Meanwhile, on Android 4.0, as consumers have realized that the browsing experience is more "desktop-like", it has led to an increase in browser usage."

FFS.

I just told you why you were totally wrong about IE6 and Firefox wasn't anywhere near standards compliant til about 2009 (YES I got my versions wrong with Firefox it was 3.5/3.6 rather than 2).

Also standards compliant is a bit of a misnomer anyway because every single browser has bugs, I can go through the multitude of them that existed with Chrome (which was very similar to hasLayout in IE6).

But hey lets make up history to suit my belief that Microsoft are pure evil.
