Internet Explorer There's a bit of a ruckus on the web about how Microsoft was supposedly cheating when it comes to Internet Explorer 9's performance on benchmarks. Digitizor, as well as some enterprising readers over at HackerNews, came to the conclusion that Microsoft included code in IE9 specifically to ace the SunSpider benchmark. I was ready to write a scathing article about this, - until I loaded up the IEBlog. As it turns, it's not cheating, it's not a bug - it's an actual piece of smart code optimisation other browsers don't have yet.

That's your problem, not mine.


Not if the dude who claimed IE9 wins all the possible benchmarks obviously lives in hallucination, and had made some comments like
I just can't avoid to compare KDE4 with with DukeNukem Forever.

Hey, he could be right! I'm sure everyone at Microsoft utterly believes that IE9 will completely blow the competition away, and that Windows Phone 7 is so fantastic it will sell like hotcakes and utterly remove Android from the marketplace.

After all, Microsoft marketing PR tells us so.
