Opera got 100% with xhtml5
Chrome got 100% with getElementsByClassName
Firefox got 100% with foreign content
99.9999% of your visitors will see no difference regardless of which browser you use, the test is rather meaningless at the moment.

Google employee Ian Hickson, the author and maintainer of the Acid2 and Acid3 tests and the HTML 5 specification itself, added, "...it's rather pointless to be publishing results for this test suite. Realistically speaking the test suite isn't even 0.1% complete yet."

Just an FYI. It is, officially, HTML5 not HTML 5. (I realize the headline came from the source.)

That is awfully biased reporting from that online magazine. Plenty of crowing about results, but no mention of the line on the page which reads:
"It is inappropriate to cite those results as other than work in progress and unstable."

Wow.. MS is damned if they do and damned if they dont. Its Cool for Google to advertise its speed and compliance with witty commercials but heaven forbid MS actually create something that is even faster and more compliant!

I thought W3C asked to hold off HTML5 deployment due to interoperability issues?

What has been released to production?
|the pre-release version of Microsoft's Internet Explorer (IE) 9 browser offers the best conformance. IE 9 beat out the very latest, in-beta versions of industry darlings Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox, as well as Apple's Safari—all of which widely tout their HTML 5 capabilities. |

Wired points out that the results are not quite what they are made out to be by the press: IE9 Leads Pack in HTML5 Support? Not Exactly [wired.com]

Might be just me but IE has always rendered web pages so much better than all the other guys - the fonts are crisper, the page looks better and the screen feels better.
The others feel a little bit retro and don't just look as good to me - I suppose it is just taste!

Yeah. I liked the comments on that blog post. IE9 passed the W3C test for existing HTML5 standards and it gets beaten up for not supporting the experimental, unapproved aspects of the standard. Priceless.
