LXer: First official HTML5 tests topped by...Microsoft

Published at LXer:

The Worldwide Web Consortium has released the results of its first HTML5 conformance tests, and according to this initial rundown, the browser that most closely adheres to the latest set of web standards is...Microsoft Internet Explorer 9. Yes, the HTML5 spec has yet to finalized. And yes, these tests cover only a portion of the spec. But we can still marvel at just how much Microsoft's browser philosophy has changed in recent months.

Like maybe many of us, I don't really care how MS IE stacks up, but it is interesting that after all these years they finally are appearing to try to follow some standards in something instead of trying to re-invent said standards to suit themselves.

Yeah, but it is WAAAAAAAY too late. The amount of IE6 crapola I keep coming across in businesses is beyond ridiculous. I'm currently working on a project where the customers and the developers are about to whip out heavy weapons and have a go at it because the customers are all stuck on IE6 and the devs are trying to hoola-hoop while balancing on top of a greased pole trying to get stuff to work. It isn't gonnna get better any time soon thanks to the morons running the IT departments who won't budget to get rid of the applications that require IE6.

The only silver lining I see in the business world is that the adoption of Windows 7 is going to get delayed because IE6 doesn't really run on it and none of the compatibility modes really work.

Talk about a mess.
