Just after Safari and Opera scored 100 in the Acid3 test, W3.org released its own. However, this is not the Acid, although it’s similar to it and tests 12 web technologies. This one will test mobile web browsers… Is this yet another race beginning?
W3.org tried to run it on Blazer 184.108.40.206, Opera Mini 4.1 Beta 1, PSP’s Netfront, Firefox 3 Beta 3, Internet Explorer 6 and “Android emulator webkit-based browser”. Continue Reading
Opera Software today announced that Opera Mini mobile web browser for mobile phones is now available on Google Android.
What is Android?
Android is a software stack for mobile devices that includes an operating system, middleware and key applications.
Ready for some more browsers fights? OK, I know that this is not a “fancy” test, it’s a basic one, but still interesting to check, right?

After yesterdays Adrian Kingsley benchmark test (Firefox 3.0 Beta 5 vs. Safari 3.1 on Mac OS X), I’ve decided to add Opera 9.5 Beta and run them on Windows machine.
Used latest browsers builds (nightly or weekly, all released on April 8th. So how were the results? They’ve actually shocked me a bit, so here you go:

After posting a screenshot of Opera’s 100/100 score in the Acid3 test, Opera team today released a public build, so everyone could check that by themselves.

Although most of people said that Opera 9.5 was the first web browser ever to score 100/100, I disagree with that. What about you? Actually, I even don’t understand why they had to report that at all as fans started to submit stories to digg, reddit and other news web sites and could confuse some of the readers.
