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."

In closing, if the individual believes that it is a bug then why hasn't he contacted Microsoft or started a conversation over on Channel 9/MSDN forums? the venue is open to discuss such issues but it seem to be he is more concerned with generating traffic to his website than actually being proactive about getting the problem sorted.

Because he's not being payed to seek bugs for Microsoft, a big company with obviously lousy management of their software development process.

Why the fuck do you think Microsoft has public betas? to get feedback of course! if you're a developer, come across a bug then head over to the Microsoft website and say, "hey, I found a bug here - is this a known one? can I hope to see this fixed soon before I spend hours trying to develop a work around?".

Sorry, but software development isn't the great unwashed masses and the ivory tower with nether interacting with each other. There is a public beta for a purpose and the fact that the web developer couldn't be even bothered contacting Microsoft to report a bug tells me he is more concerned with bashing Microsoft than bringing the bug to their attention.

Do you know how many of the bug reports I've filed with microsoft over IE behavior that I found in public betas have been fixed? Wanna guess ? I'll give you a hint: multiply the number of bugs fixed ( call it X ) by any number (call it Y) and you will get X back.

XY=X for all Y in R
