IE8 and the Acid3 Test

This morning I saw a web banner ad which actually made me laugh out loud. No surprise then that it’s for Internet Explorer… The ad is for the latest update to version 8 and carries the strapline “Why settle for second best?”

According to the Acid3 test, which tests browsers and their ability to comply with web standards, IE 8 currently scores 32/100. Most other browsers score 100 or very close to 100. How then can Microsoft imply that IE8 is the best browser to use? Is this a case of misleading advertising?

Here’s my take on it:

IE8 - second best?

Second best? (Or third? Or fourth? Or even fifth?)
