    Read the article and think about it. I'll post some quotes to help :)

    ""IE 8.1 kicks major butt in the Acid3 Test scoring 71 out of 100, passing with flying colors."

    "Graph created in Excel to showcase Microsoft's greatness in the browser market"

    "Server-side code decompiler"

    "Mike Chelly:
    'One of our primary goals is to give developers an easier way to test and debug how their sites and web apps work in different browsers, from within one browser. [Pauses to answer a call from his iPhone]'"

    Apparently Mixx's frontpage algorithim is:
    Code:
    <?php
    function frontpage() {
     if(preg_match('/cats/',$title)) 
     {
      $promote = true;
     } else {
      $promote = false;
     }
    }
    ?>

    :p

    Can't wait for 8.2 when Microsoft unveils Robocode 1.0, this writes all the code for developers, they just speak into the microphone included with the software package the requirements and it will generate W3C compliant XHTML Strict 1.0 pre-validated code complete with grammar and spell check and version control. The additional plugin will upload the files to a webhost, register the domain, and create the graphics too. And all code is guaranteed to pass the Acide 3 test with a score of 95 or better. Quite amazing.

    No I didn't :)

    Plenty of people on Friendfeed were caught out by this though :)
