While Internet Explorer 7 and Firefox 2 don’t pass Acid2 test and only their future versions will do that (Internet Explorer 8 and Firefox 3), the Acid3 test is already released. 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?
Acid3 tests the following specifications:
DOM2 Style (getComputedStyle, …)
DOM2 Traversal (NodeIterator, TreeWalker)
DOM2 Views (defaultView)
HTML4 (object, iframe, …)
HTTP (Content-Type, 404, …)
Selectors (:lang, :nth-child(), combinators, dynamic changes, …)
CSS2.1 (’inline-block’, ‘pre-wrap’, parsing…)
CSS3 Color (rgba(), hsla(), …)
CSS3 UI (’cursor’)
SVG (SVG Animation, SVG Fonts, …)
My vote goes for Safari. They’re already working hard to pass this one as soon as possible. Also, Safari 2.0.2 was the first web browser, which passed the Acid2 test. What’s your vote?
