These are then converted into percentages and given a weighting factor of 1.15 to allow for general IE incompatibilities and poor HTML coding.

Opera takes first place, with 72.5%
Netpositive takes second place, with 59.8%
Mozilla takes third place, with a mere 36.8%

NEWS FLASH!!! Mac Internet Exploder, previously thought quite a good product, actually takes last place in this study, with a pathetic 34.5%.
