IE 8 JavaScript Not So Great

Last week we wrote about a Microsoft-sponsored report that shows that IE 8 is number one in blocking malware. Now there's a Google report that puts IE 8 dead last in handling JavaScript.

When it comes to JavaScript, it's all about the failures, and IE 8 failure to conform to the spec was far worse than Opera, which came in first. Safari finished second and Chrome in third. I guess it ain't rigged, because if it was Chrome would have at least come in second!
