just ran firefox thru acid3 and got 100/100 but still showed the text "you should not see this at all" in the top left corner.

How this guy received money to say all is wonderful all is 100%?

Really it's so easy to buy "mind' of people...

Wait... so because the software didn't pass the test, the test was adjusted so the software could pass? That's exactly what the nation has done with education (kids aren't smart enough to pass the tests, so dumb down the standardized tests), and has proven it doesn't help a thing. Makes it worse, in fact.

To be fair, so many aspects of the original test were so convoluted that the odds of running into some of these so called "problems" in the real world would be next to none. What browsers should really be focusing on now instead of just compatibility with synthetic benchmarks is how to get more out of a smaller footprint. 5 tabs on firefox should not mean over 300mb of memory in use.

...sigh, they didn't adjust the test so FF and IE could pass, they removed antiquated and unnecessary SVG font requirements that have nothing to do with properly rendering modern web pages.

This is why FF has been stuck at 97% for what seems like forever. It would've been a pointless waste of time to implement a small subset of the SVG spec just to pass Acid 3 , which is basically the only reason to do it (but Opera developers seems to think otherwise). The creators of the Acid test recognized this issue and, among other revisions, removed these SVG font requirements, although it took them a while to do so.

Acid 3 is a specification now?... lol, that's news to me.

Letting the people who make the products design the evaluations sounds like something the oil industry would do.

FF6 uses a bit less than that, at least for me and I use TONS of add-ons. Link at the bottom of post. Also, FF is making FF7-8 30% or so more mem efficient than FF5. so expect to see that soon, also in a link.

An Opera dev, Håkon Wium Lie, was one of the people behind the recent change to the Acid 3 test.

You guys are completely missing the point.
They just removed useless, outdated or very rare crap that Acid3 was testing for.
Not so that Firefox and IE got 100/100.
Dragonsqrrl hit it spot on.

[citation][nom]rantoc[/nom]So they simplified the test so even all the low-performance device browsers will score well, wonder who paid for it!?[/citation]

Read this.
