IE7: Were they ready?

An analysis of several major corporate sites and their performance in IE7. Interesting, and basically shows that most sites work fine, or with relatively minor quirks in the new browser. The author insinuates that standards compliant sites perform worst in IE7 — but this is inaccurate. Instead, sites which break away from standards by using ugly hacks and filters in order to achieve the desired results in IE6 perform more poorly. CSS hacks and filters are often necessary, but you’re fooling yourself if you think they’re anything but ugly hacks — and if you think they won’t come back to bite you in the ass later on. They will — but unfortunately, there’s not much you can do about it.
