*IE10 required

Well it looks like the Verge is now (mostly) working as it should, but only on IE10. The gradients on the top stories also show up correctly on the home page. I guess that MS made some tweaks to the renderer. The WYSIWYG editor for articles still doesn't work 100% like it should though.

Update: It turns out that this was an update pushed out by the Verge itself (it was just coincidence that it appeared on the Windows 8 Release Preview launch). IE9 users will also see the favicon, along with other IE specific features such as jump lists.
