"It's the official HTML5 test that praises IE9's HTML5
features. The W3C has spoken, the IE9 is the best HTML5 browser.
But my question is: How credible can the test be, if you discredit
it yourself and if you quietly change the results?
"I know, how dare I question the authority of the W3C and how
dare I bash IE9 again. I am such an angry guy. But wait: Tame your
fingers, don't scroll down to the comments section yet. In fact, I
like IE9 and Microsoft's progress, which has, conceivably, brought
us the best IE since IE4. IE9 is a very competitive browser with
many strengths and some weaknesses, just like all other
"What I don't like is that there appears to be a need to push
IE9 more than it needs to be pushed and it may suffer credibility
as a result. We have seen Microsoft's IE marketing campaign
reaching from market share blog posts that go to extreme lengths in
selecting convenient numbers and forgetting those that would
actually represent a realistic picture."
