The Acid3 test for web browsers has been released. Drunken Fist has a number of screenshots that show the failure rate among the various top browsers. There are some really interesting results from the tests:
- Safari 3: 39% success (latest nightlies are up to 87%)
- Firefox 3: 59% success
- Firefox 2: 50% success
- Opera 9: 46% success
- IE 7: 12% success
- IE 6: 11% success
Safari is the surprising top dog in the list, but what I find most interesting is that Firefox 3 (which passes the Acid2 test) only hits 59% in the new test. I would have guessed that being Acid2 compliant would mean being nearly Acid3 compliant. Apparently, that isn’t the case. It looks like web browsers still have a long way to go in the standards race.
