I figure gecko is the last one to pass that weird test, lol (IE not in discussion)
I just noticed Ars Technica talking about it happening this week. Opera, Konqueror, and Safari, of course, had already passed the test. At the pace IE is going, it will pass the test after the web browser is considered obsolete.
It's nice to see that Mozilla finally got it going. It's interesting to me that the updated rendering engine makes use of vector graphics, which would explain how it deals with layered graphics better.
What exactly is this acid2 test?
and I'm assuming FF3.0 is still to buggy to use fully, eh?
It is a test that tests to see if your web browser is standards compliant.
You can find the Acid2 test here: http://www.webstandards.org/files/acid2/test.html
The mozillas always failed miserably.
Very true... this is what the test looks like with Firefox 2.0:
and this is in IE7
Safari passed Acid2 in Oct. of 2005, in version 2.0.2, this is what it USED to look like
Opera passed acid in June of 2006, in version 9.0, this is what it looks like in Opera 8.0
also, Acid2 only test advanced CSS standard, really not that important in any day2day webpages u would possibly encounter.
And posting old browsers is important because....?
blah, I like it.
theres already a firefox 3 coming out?
lol i just got 2 couple months ago
Firefox 3 has been in the works for a while. Think of it like Leopard. It is the next-gen, as-yet-unreleased software. Peoplel can play with Firefox 3 because it is open-source and everyone can watch it minute-by-minute. 10.5 is hidden in an underground vault protected by killer ferrets.
