Internet & Networking Earlier this week, Apple launched a HTML5 Showcase page, displaying several uses for HTML5 and related technologies. However, it turns out that Apple is using trickery to block out browsers other than Safari, with the end result that browsers with better support for web standards than Safari can't access the demos.

Most of IE9's support is "unknown". That's fine, however giving a final result where all "unknown" is assumed to be "false" is horribly wrong. I'm not an IE advocate at all, be it only because putting a web browser at the core of an OS is a horrible design mistake, but this issue makes this test looks as biaised as Microsoft's one, in my opinion...

IE9 is still a year away. Until they ship it, it doesn’t exist and nor does support for this or that. It’s not like open source browsers where you can download trunk and see what’s in there.

Then they should write "Unknown" as IE9's result. Displaying a percentage somehow implies that they already know what's inside, and what is especially funny is that under certain circumstances, IE9 gets a lower score than IE 8 ! ^^'
