"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 browsers.

"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."
