The latest build of Opera 9.0 is now only the second browser after Safari to pass the ACID2 test.
i am amazed.

It's not the second browser. Safari, iCab, Konqueror, Prince were all ahead of Opera, in that order. Though out of those, Prince isn't a browser.

liorean: According to www.HowToCreate.co.uk - Mark 'Tarquin' Wilton-Jones. :

quote:
Opera 9 now passes the Acid 2 test, making it the second browser to do so. And yes, I can count. Safari passed first, and Opera is second.Konqueror and iCab almost pass (and claim to pass), but they both fail to apply one of the styles required by the test, and as a result they display a scrollbar even though they shouldn't (the Acid 2 guide neglects to mention this style, but see the source code for the test itself):

I admit I haven't tried iCab and Konqueror but I know Tarquin well enough to know he's honest in his tests and don't bother to finger point Opera where/when Opera fails.

Anyway this is no pissing contest. This is the 2nd Acid test. I hope more user agents will soon pass it so we, web developers, are sure there is a common standard support accross most user agents.

the only thing that bothers me is when you use the mousewheel on the acid2 page. the face scrolls upward and downward while some of its "pixels" remain static. i dont know if that's supposed to happen?

GRUMBLE: This is the expected behaviour since some rows use position:fixed;

I'm not surprised of this result... Since v7, I noticed Opera developpers took more and more into consideration web standards.

Even if it's a small step toward a common behavior across web browsers, it is encouraging
