Firefox 3.0 Alpha passes the acid test

December 13, 2006

One of the things that has bothered Firefox‘s creators has been it’s inability to pass the Acid2 browser test. The Acid2 test is a test for the rendering abilities of browsers which was developed by the Web Standards Project. A recent alpha release of Firefox 3.0 has been able to pass thanks to changes in it’s rendering engine. Now Firefox can pass it will join the likes of Safari and Opera in being able to say it is truely (or at least as near as possible) standards compliant. And, of course this puts them another step ahead of Microsoft with Internet Explorer.

This alpha release of Firefox 3.0 seems aimed at getting the rendering engine right, which is definately the correct thing to do, they can add all the new features and bells and whistles before a final release.
