Web Development Whatever Happened to Standards?

I have been working on a couple of projects of late that have caused me to look into browser compliance with HTML5 and CSS styling techniques. Little did I realize that it is just as big a mess now as it was back in the Netscape V Internet Explorer browser wars. We need a specification that everyone agrees to and then we need the browsers to stick to it. This business of coding three options is pretty ridiculous. The silliest thing I can see is that most of the webkit styles have moz matching pairs anyway
