Internet Explorer "At last year's PDC, held in November, Microsoft showed a graph showing scores of a variety of Web browsers in the SunSpider JavaScript benchmark, to show off the progress that the company was making with Internet Explorer 9. Another such graph was shown off at the recent MIX event. What was most interesting about the graph was not IE9's progress, but Opera's."

Fortunately, there are a multitude of other sites (other than the official club site) that I can visit in order to follow this team's progress. Most of those follow web standards, and are of better quality anyway.

PS: This is off-topic, but anyway ... here is a sampler of why this sport is a great spectator sport:
