Mozilla tech evangelist Paul Rouget has a go at Internet Explorer 9 in a series of simple graphs, comparing it to Firefox 4. I think Rouget doesn’t like IE9. Not sure though.
The obvious progression of this series is to compare Firefox 4 to Chrome and Safari. I await the results.
Microsoft on Standards: Embrace, Extend, Extinguish!
yeah sure y not the standards are years behind
The raw results for Chrome, Safari and the rest can be seen if you click through to the “SOURCE” link.
Clicking through, we see that the current version of Chrome beats both IE9 and the Firefox 4 beta. And I’ll bet Firefox is as big a memory pig as ever.
Firefox seems to be far better than any of these…..specially after the improved firefox-4 beta version…..

There’s a reason that tech sites like Arstechnica and Tom’s Hardware always put a ‘larger is better’ or ‘smaller is better’ on their bar graphs. I have no clue if a browser should get higher scores or lower scores on the html test.
My workplace just upgraded to IE 7, so I’ll let you know how things are with IE 9 in about 5 years.
We are still on IE6 and are still evaluating IE7 and 8… (they’ve been evaluating 7 & 8 for the past year…)
Justin says it all – it doesn’t really matter what actually happens, corporate IT shops are way behind the curve when it comes to browser support. The large shop I work for still has apps that require IE 6. No one questions the value (or even necessity) of moving to a more modern browser, but the effort involved is larger than I think a lot of designers imagine.
Digg did a thoughtful piece on this.

IE9 has the bare essentials. Nothing more. It is modern but may not have all the bells and whistles.
THis visual is confusing. What is “HTML 5 Test?” Is it a test of compatibility or a bug test? Is a high number good or bad? What the $&*^?
i’m definitely a fan of firefox, & would use it over all others, but after realising that my laptop has been set up with x64 & that’s still not officially supported by ff, i’m a little unimpressed. even ff4 isn’t really advertised as being x64 compatible. so for now, cos i have to, i’m using chrome…
