Internet Explorer "There, I said it. Microsoft has been bombarding the media with claims about how much better IE9 is than all the other browsers, more HTML5 and CSS3 compliant than any other browser that ever existing and ever will. It's the only browser that passes all the tests they made up. And, Microsoft has finally implemented the CSS3 selectors that were implemented by other browsers back in, what? 2003? Because Microsoft has updated IE to support CSS3 selectors and rounded corners, they want us to believe that somehow IE9 magically supports the whole slew of CSS3 visual styling. I'm afraid it doesn't. As a matter of fact, IE9's support for CSS3 visual styling is so poor that the results are shocking."

I really hoped IE9 would finally allow web developers to use all the cool stuff without caring for an old, bugged IE.

You know what? IE should simply stay unsupported. I mean if they are not able to have an up to date browser that can't always cause us (web developers) headache. One always has to create two versions of every website. One for IE and one for the rest. This simply sucks.

Yeah, that's an angry posting, but IMO I have a good reason for being angry.
