    Are they kidding, the world larges software firm that has done browser for ore than 15 years are not able to build a JavaScript engine that is more than twice as slow as Google(and Opera). This has to be a joke, are they afraid of the Internet platform will take over for the windows platform and trying to slow the development?

      Yea I wonder too how they cant make good browser with so much more money than the other vendors, this is just sick! For start IE9 looks good but I remember IE7 and IE8, the same thing how they will follow standards and shit like the browser is “best than ever”, now I dont believe they can fix everything and make it work like normal browser until I see it.
