    Ok guys, let me word it a different way. Being that Safari passed and the others didn't, does that mean that Safari is the better browser as far as displaying web pages with all of their content correctly ??

    Theoretically, but the Acid2 test is designed to be extremely complex and difficult to pass. Since IE doesn't (and won't even in Vista) pass it, I *highly* doubt you will see ANY sites that are non-compliant with Gecko based browsers due to anything in the Acid test. No point for web devs to write "correct" sites that IE can't render.

    not necessarily. it's only better at displaying the acid 2 test better .. the test is just one test and doesn't use everything available. firefox, opera, and safari are all pretty good. but they all have their quirks. camino uses the gecko rendering engine, which is the same one used in the mozilla suite and firefox.

    Come to think of it, in many ways, Firefox has become worse at rendering web pages. For instance, many web pages on E*TRADE (e.g., portfolio summary) and American Express (e.g., credit card account management section) look whacky under Firefox 1.5.

    Just watch out for those idiot web coders who design sites for IE exclusively, thus destroying the very foundation of HTML standardization.

    Like making posts on Blogger or Wordpress where Firefox/Camino works and Safari is useless :mad:

    simply put, no. it's just a test. it's not even real world usage. chalk it up as a technology achievement not a standards compliant better rendering engine.
