Submission + - Internet Explorer 9 the most compatible? (microsoft.com)

_Shorty-dammit writes: Microsoft has released some numbers showing that the IE9 Platform Preview is more standards-compatible than Mozilla Firefox 3.6.3, Opera 10.52, Apple Safari 4.05, and Google Chrome 4.1. This seemed rather interesting at first, until I stopped looking at the charts and re-read the introduction, which states that they are all test pages that Microsoft wrote. They do, however, say that they were developed in conjunction with the W3C. Though I wonder how the IE9 PP would fair against the same competitors in a test that they had no hand in laying out.
