Internet Explorer 9 And Google Chrome 10 Released

Microsoft released Internet Explorer 9 a couple of days ago. There are various sites such as Ars Technica where you can go read reviews and benchmarks. I have tested it in my HTML5/CSS 3 test page and no changes have been made. It shouldn’t be surprising since the last version I tested was the Release Candidate. I’m sorry to say but Microsoft still has not addressed how they are going to go about updating the browser. Of course they will release patches if any security holes come about, but I’m more interested in holding Microsoft at it’s word that they are going to follow web standards. Microsoft has said that they will not add support for unstandardized web specifications. What happens when they become standardized?

Also, Google released Chrome 10 and are well on the way to releasing v. 100,000 sometime in 2014. Just like IE9, Chrome has no change to my test page. However, Chrome now natively supports CSS 3 box-shadow! No more -webkit prefix for Chrome. The same cannot be said about Safari though so, for now, -webkit-box-shadow remains.
