    Hey there,

    Has anyone else been using the Safari nightly builds and noticed that they don't pass the Acid2 tests anymore? I hadn't been using the nightlies for a while, so I wondered if anyone knows exactly when it broke.

    Not that this really matters, of course. ;)

    Yeah, overall I've been very happy with the close-to-latest nightlies because the speed is amazing, and I haven't had any problems with real-world websites. It's just I'm surprised that they've had a regression in such a high-profile instance, especially since the developer made such a big deal of it passing Acid2 in the first place.

    Until very recently I was mainly a Firefox user; but the memory footprint of that app is just too rediculous when you have multiple tabs open - and the speed difference between FF and Safari is really noticable (which I must say really surprised me).
