I notice that yet another "benchmark" blog post from Microsoft is making the rounds on the internet.
This time they are bragging about having the highest score
As one might expect, the impression people are getting when reading the blog is not one that matches reality. The results are misleading unless you read the "fine print", which seems to escape most people who comment on it. You see, while the IE10 preview appears to come out on top, the results are not what most people think they are.

The discussion on Google's decision to remove H.264 from Chrome is still raging, and an argument that is brought up a lot is market adoption.
Now, the primary video to serve video on the web today is Flash. It doesn't really matter which codec it's using because it's played through Flash anyway. But what about native HTML5 video support? Which format will have the widest support in the market?

Earlier this week I wrote about Microsoft's rather misleading standards compliance table
, which falsely gave you the impession that Internet Explorer 9 was better than the other browsers, unless you carefully read the "fine print". Yesterday, Microsoft posted a clarification and corrections
for the test page. I'm very happy that they accepted the criticism, and even updated the page with some corrections.
