IE9 final preview live, near perfect in Acid3

Microsoft today posted the fourth and last Platform Preview of Internet Explorer 9 with its first truly high web accuracy score. The release finally moves the company's new Chakra engine for JavaScript into the browser itself and scores 95 on the historically difficult Acid3 accuracy test. While still short of the perfect scores of Apple's Safari and Google Chrome, the result is roughly on par with Firefox 4 and addresses a longstanding complaint of inaccuracy in IE.

Webkit most compliant

The future of the Safari web browser has been a topic of great interest lately, and some MacNN forum members have discovered that Webkit Safari's developmental alter ego is so far the most compliant with next generation web standards. According to the forum members' findings, WebKit and Safari 3.1 receive the highest scores on the Acid3 compliancy tests at 90-percent and 74-percent respectively, while Camino 2.0a1, Firefox 3.0b5, and Seamonkey 2.0a1 come in third place at 69-percent.
