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."

Seriously, talk about stupidity!

Here's a tip, if you're going to bitch about IE lacking CSS3 support, use a test that actually USES CSS3 and not the 'for testing not for use on development websites' -moz and -webkit prefixes.

Of course that neither gecko or webkit ACTUALLY SUPPORT ANY OF THE REAL CSS3 PROPERTIES YET!!!

Go through the source, delete every -moz- prefix, and change every -webkit- prefix to -ms-, then report in on how it works!

Really funny the only browser that ACTUALLY supports the REAL CSS3 properties is Opera, and because said test DOESN'T EVEN USE THE REAL CSS3 PROPERTIES it doesn't work their either.

Absolutely pathetic.

WHAT HE SAID! Only with less CAPs and !s.

Actually, I wouldn't say stupidity; I'd go for troll, along with some comments above. But other than that, what he said.

Gecko and WebKit support many CSS3 properties, just not all of them. Every browser supports standards to a varying degree - point me to one that supports HTML 3.2 in full.
