About 15 years ago, I went through a battery of phone interviews for a little known company in Redmond that starts with the letter M and ends in the letter T and has icrosof in the middle. Anyways, I passed the phone interviews with flying colors and proceeded to get flown out and do the standard 3 group interview process (interviewed by 3 different teams). So, to prepare.. i'm thinking, this is (you know) so I should bone up on my (you know) technologies, buzz words, etc... Well, it was a disaster. I went in with the totally wrong mindframe. I was asked these questions about reversing a string so that each word was reversed but the still in the same order, and various other algorithmic questions. I just drew a blank, because I was totally prepared for a different kind of interview, and I found myself in shock over what was being asked of me. Needless to say, I didn't get offered a position. But it did teach me to despise this sort of interview. I have no problems with doing relevant code samples, but unless you're absolutely in need of someone that can think on the spot after being suprised by the interview... what's the point?

As you point out, the Paul Thurrot's comment was from a year ago, and dealt with beta 1. A great deal of CSS compliance has occurred since then. While they have only implemented a few newer features, the features they do implement are largely correct now. Also, it's pretty bogus to count CSS3 compliance against any browser, since CSS3 has not been ratified and could change before ratification (this is one reason why it's so important to implement these features using -moz and similar tags, otherwise you're creating more incompatibility possibilities). Also, you might want to practice what you preach. Validating www.newscloud.com generates 408 XHTML errors. THAT could very well be your problem. Invalid XHTML can cause all kinds of issues.
