WebKit nightlies, however, do not.Safari 3.1 fails the Acid3 test with 75/100
No it isn't. The WebKit and Opera teams passed yesterday. Webkit release candidates are available for download every day, while Opera's latest version is a few days off....it's quite possible that in this case, Safari "passes" the test artifically...
I don't understand what you're saying. The most important thing a browser can do is comply to all standards.Besides, Acid is just measuring a number of various web standards...
Yes it very much is, you just don't realize it because it isn't usually obvious. That's what makes the Acid tests so useful - they make it obvious.that apparently aren't really affecting my browsing.
I'm guessing you haven't actually looked for such a situation. Firefox won't draw correctly as this proves, and it does it very slowly, which you can see if you compare it with Safari. I'm not sure how it stacks up against IE or Opera but it wouldn't surprise me if they were also quicker.Say what you will- for all the greatness of Acid, I haven't seen a situation where Safari is going to pull out ahead of Firefox on an ordinary web page.
I'm not really sure where the hostility to this is coming from.
Frosty said:Horrible shitbrowser Firefox 3 can't do it either
Jooooin ussssss. It'ssss blisssssss.
It's not even about that. Primitive browsers with gigantic user bases slow down the adoption of newer standards and hold the entire web back from becoming faster and more useful. That's what I mean when I say it's not readily obvious.And offhand, if I have to look for my browser to break then I'm not having a problem; If I don't have to look, but it breaks on its own, then firefox is out of business.
What does this even mean?I don't want to imagine what's going to come from Apple as a result of updating Safari one day.
