The current HTML Working Group charter defines HTML5 as being “a platform-neutral and device-independent design.” Pretty straightforward, right? Well, try telling that to Microsoft. Earlier this week, when it launched IE10 Platform Preview 1, the world's leading software vendor claimed that Internet Explorer is the only browser to deliver a “native HTML5” experience.
Microsoft's ludicrous claim didn't go unnoticed. While rivals Mozilla and Opera were quick to respond, it was the former that stood out with a parodic bug filing on its Bugzilla bug tracking system.
