    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.

    also, Acid2 only test advanced CSS standard, really not that important in any day2day webpages u would possibly encounter.

    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.
