    There's not a browser yet on the market in released form that can pass Acid3 - it's only a few days old! Safari 3.1 is supposed to be closer.

    The Acid3 is very new and is designed to try and crap out the browser. Note that the latest webkit nightly gets 88

    past two day's webkit actually scored 90/100 on acid3.

    Its interesting that firefox 2 failed acid 2, while scored 50/100 in acid3.

    Im testing 30868 too? This is strange, Im using Tiger, however, but I can't imagine there is any test that is OS related?

    PS. Im testing webkit nightly, not safari with nightly plugin,

    I just ran it ~10 times, It seems that it gives slightly variable results, with the upper being 90 and the lower being 88.

    Yeah, you don't always get the same score each time when you run it.

    Even on firefox 3beta4 I got a better score than Safari. I really think Safari is such a POS browser... so much so that test now has put up a window and it won't close and safari wouldn't quit [had to force quit]. :rolleyes: I guess the site does what it's supposed to. :p

    (firefox on the left, obviously)

    They are talking about latest build of Webkit (which is the very latest developer version of Safari) and it gets nearly 90, so Apple have done a lot of work on it since 3.0.4.

    Unless this is a joke, this is a pretty irresponsible/stupid thing to say isn't it?

    Safari can't pass a test that is still squeaky new and has no other browsers that can pass it either. It gets a very respectable, very high score (higher than most or all), so...

    "I'ts a piece of sh*t" ????? :confused: :confused: :confused:

    This has to be the most extreme over-the-top hyperbolic statement made by anyone since the beginning of time itself.

    no offense, but I would gently remind readers that webkit is an OSS project and there are worldwide developers working on it for free who have no relationship with apple.:)
    IDK, I always get same numbers, if you are interested, you can click that "A" after the test finished, see exactly what are the variation there.

    That is true that it isn't just Apple :eek:. (Though as Webkit is Apple sponsored they do have a relationship with Apple :p)

    Not really, see my previous post.

    I was mistaken (as eraserhead mentioned) but there's more to my dislike of Safari than just a test. I just think it's slow, buggy and crummy and I'm entitled to think so.

    It is funny the overreaction to my overreaction though.




    edit: I might try the nightly builds/webkit thing for safari though, perhaps it will work better and I'll learn to like it.
