Safari Passes Acid2 Test
In the race that really featured only one runner, Safari is the first browser to correctly render the Acid2 Test. The announcement was made nearly two days ago…apparently proving that my RSS reader isn’t working correctly. Safari developer Dave Hyatt really took to the task, providing almost daily updates over the past couple of weeks, trying to work out all the bugs for Safari 2.0. Congratulations, Dave, on a job well done!
We still have yet to see or hear anything from other browser companies. Opera, who initially challenged Microsoft to pass the Acid2 test has not only failed it themselves, but are busy planning for their CEO to swim the Atlantic. Firefox also failed the test but is making some progress towards fixing it. The big question is if the folks at Microsoft are going to try to fix the next version of Internet Explorer to fully support the test.
