It is a very funny marketing scheme but there’s enough stats out there to twist that Microsoft isn’t actually lying… they aren’t just telling all the truths. It feels like a comparison for home or work use as opposed to developers use. Gave me a good laugh for the day :D

"Firefox and Chrome have more support for emerging standards like HTML5 and CSS3, but Internet Explorer 8 invested heavily in having world-class, consistent support for the entire CSS2.1 specification." HAHAHAHHAHAAHHA
