Sounds like what they have been doing to the schools for a while.
"Oh, the students aren't passing as much now? DUMB DOWN THE TESTS!"
"So, are more kids are passing now? PROBLEM SOLVED!"

:/

Title is misleading, the test was not really "simplified." They removed useless kruft that was nolonger part of web standards.

Title should be "Acid3 Test Fixed; All Modern Browsers Score 100." Current title is disingenuous link bait.

"unnecessary SVG font requirements that have nothing to do with properly rendering modern web pages."

- SVG font are a standard. Them should give support.

"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
> limi.net/articles/firefox-acid3/"

- The fox and the grapes. Good job Fire"fox".

"just to pass Acid 3, which is basically the only reason to do it"

- Them must give support not to pass a test, but to support a standard.

Of course, ignore the fact that SVf font are a standard and Firefox wants to sell as the "defender of the standards" and that "always supports" them (only when it suits him).

"(but Opera developers seems to think otherwise)."

- Opera developers seems to think that SVG font are a stantdard, then is implement.

"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."

- The creators of the Acid test recognized the issue "Firefox should pass the test" then should get off a standard (font SVG), but instead let specifications that are not yet a standard (for example text-shadow).

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

- Acid 3 no, but SVG font yes.

@phate "They removed useless kruft that was nolonger part of web standards."

- Error. SVG font ARE standard. But, for example, text-shadow not yet standard, and are not removed.
