Internet Explorer Microsoft have released IE9 Platform Preview 3, an application that gives developers access to the IE9 rendering engine (it's not a full browser). In this update they have added hardware accelerated HTML5 Video, Canvas, Fonts (using WOFF) and big improvements in JavaScript with ES5, DOM Traversal, L2 and L3 events and 83/100 Acid3 score. It sits between Firefox and Chrome 6 on JavaScript speed, but outperforms every browser in real tests.

Difference between doing standards correctly, versus just doing standards.

Check the CSS tests on all of the major browsers, it offers a much clearer picture of the actual situation.

WebKit (the darling of the rendering engines) is particularly notorious for buggy or lacking implementations.
