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.

I am not sure I understand your reply. Pedantic?

In the general world of development, I know that few developers document, design, write to save memory, write to garner speed through efficiency, etc. It irks me that no one seems to care. All the memory, fast chips, the fancy interpreters and byte compilers, etc., seem to have made everyone sort of soft.

Sorry, not trying to poke at you. It's just one of those things with me... like when someone touches my screen.

Pedant: A person who is excessively concerned with minor details and rules or with displaying academic learning.


Only I would be concerned about an optional choice buried within the HTML5 spec that only IE doesn’t support.
