Sounds like you need a better search engine.

Part of the problem is that browser vendors will be economical with the 
truth.  Marketing people always have an over-optimistic view of the 
compliance of their product, and will always give themselves the benefit 
of the doubt in borderline cases.  Also, changing the compliance 
statement, to remove false claims that are exposed, is likely to a very 
low priority for the developers.
