I hate to point it out, but if you really want to try HTML5 sites, don't use IE..... Some interesting reading here: HTML5 test updated: how well does your browser support HTML5 now? | rakaz

IE9 interprets HTML5 correctly!

Hate to point it out but, realistically HTML5 doesn't work as well in other browsers as it does for IE9. There are subtle differences seen. But, you have to remember that when it's designed, it's designed with IE9 in mind, not for other browsers. So what you see on other browsers is an interpretation of what that browser thinks it is. Not what it is in reality...

Sorry, I have to disagree with that. HTML5 is not designed for IE 9, it is the next version of HTML for all browsers. IE 9 may be designed with HTML5 in mind, but not visa versa.

Well, this is definitely not what I was expecting... Runckle, 'the internet' and all that it is is never designed with certain browsers in mind, web browsers are designed with features from HTML / XML / XHTML / PHP / JavaScript (or ECMAScript if you will) and so forth in mind, and in order to harness the power of those langauges and protocols.

The only reason Microsoft made IE9 look so awesome in their HTML5 tests, is that the only tests they performed were on HTML5 support that they built in to IE9. I would much rather test all browsers by a single test that was not developed by anyone that has 'one specific browser in mind' and compare those results... It gives a much more accurate result.

On that note, I have found quite a few HTML5 websites lately (made by amazingly talented and skilled individuals) and tested them all in the latest betas of IE, Firefox, Chrome and Opera browsers. IE9 is most definitely not the best.

Learning HTML5 & CSS
I give up trying to learn HTML5 and CSS3. I've been struggling with it for quite some time and tonight I was ready to through my computer on the floor. That's how frustrated I was.
