ACID3 Test Updated

Makes life easier for the browser programmers.

Earlier this week, Ian Hickson, author of the Acid3 test has informed community about the update. According to the source, specific implementation checks of features have been disabled as they are likely to be heavily modified in the future or completely removed.

As a result, Firefox 6 and Internet Explorer 9 web browsers now achieves a perfect 100/100 score.

    How interesting! Now all browsers should easily achieve Acid3 to 100% =P

      Correction: I was just informed that extensions can change the result. Just tested it in Incognito, and I achieved the 100% :D… (And a “You shouldn’t been seeing this at all” :S )

    acid 4 was said to appear once acid 3 got 4/5 major browsers to pass.
    it shouldn’t be to far away

    IE9 misses the shadow behind “Acid3” (see screenshot in the post).

    “the final page has to look exactly, pixel for pixel, like this reference rendering.”
