When Microsoft began releasing betas of Internet Explorer 9 in 2010, Redmond's huge global user community quickly started uncovering various strengths and weaknesses of the new version. One demerit quickly emerged that still hasn't completely gone away: IE9 doesn't play well with certain versions of the popular rich text editor ("RTE") TinyMCE as well as its main competitor, FCK/CK
If you've not seen the UK show (or the local variants that exist in the US, Australia, and Germany), one of the regular features is to set a timed lap in a vehicle as part of a review. Same track, same(ish) driver, and therefore a reasonable comparison on performance.
