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. Opera Team “said” that they’ve reached 100/100 first, showed a picture as prove but haven’t provided any builds for anyone to run the Acid3 test themselves, so no one could confirm that… Continue Reading

This one gives even more headaches to web browsers developers as well as some “pressure”, it’s like a mini competition. So who will pass it first?
