wow. Not that it really matters in the big picture, but OW5.5 is the first browser I've used that completely passes the Acid2 test!

Safari passed this test a month or two back as well. Since OmniWeb is also based on WebKit (actually, a more recent version), they are the only two browsers on any platform that can make that claim.

Well Nokia use WebKit on their new Phones - so they might also pass it too.

Shiira will also pass by virtue of the same thing - use of WebKit

I just visited the acid two test page
http://www.webstandards.org/files/acid2/test.html

sp14 "passes", but I did note a couple of rendering problems in parts of the smiley face. What are the criteria for passing? Safari, FWIW, renders the page absolutely perfectly.

I see no rendering errors at all for SP14. It's perfect.

I have found that if you have ad blocking set to prevent inline content from third-party sites from being loaded, the Acid2 test will not render correctly. Toggling this setting allowed the Acid2 test to pass.

This is probably because you're blocking some gifs it need to display correctly. This is not an error in OW.

Thanks for mentioning this! This is a very criticial point, otherwise the eyes and nose will not appear properly on the smiley face, and it will appear that the test fails with OW 5.5.

This was tested with OW 5.5 SP 15.

I just tested Opera 9, and it also passed the Acid2 test.

Firefox renders it properly about half-way. IE6 completely bombs, though! It looks like a splattered red mess with IE6.

Opera 9 beta passes as well (I almost hate to admit it, but I've been using Opera pretty much exclusively for a month now--it's hard not to be impressed by its speed...) If we could have OW's features and Opera's speed, man o man...

There are some geniuses thinking they invented something and make flash ads huge when you mouse over them. Result: Nothing on OS X can do such thing and you lose entire page content.

Such stupid inventions become "fashion" too. Other webmaster sees such thing, offers it to advertisers with 6x price.

Supporting every single guideline in W3C and even passing an evil test as Acid 2 is a GOOD thing.

Browsers should pass "genius webmaster (!) on acid" test too.

Actually, iCab has passed this test for ages, when there really was no other browser I know of that passed the test.

If you want near perfect standards compliance, use iCab. This browser even tells you if the page you are viewing is standards compliant. :-) If you want regex ad blocking and the best cookie management solution on the market, though, as is the case with me, you will have to stick with OW. ;-)

I use Rapidweaver for managing a site and iCab said it doesn't support shadow property.

Again, it is a nice browser in its own way.

Well iCab b382 (3.0.2) doesn't :rolleyes:

Bon Echo has this feature too albeit with the Firebug extension, but doesn't pass the test itself.;)

( Edit: Just got hold of the Opera 9 (non-beta) release - still passes as one would expect...)

Opera 9 beta passes as well (I almost hate to admit it, but I've been using Opera pretty much exclusively for a month now--it's hard not to be impressed by its speed...) If we could have OW's features and Opera's speed, man o man...

I've found that Opera loves it's cache (perhaps to build speed) and doesn't respond to site changes that well - i.e. when site testing the results wouldn't show?!

Opera 9 can also be configured to display an error dialog, with CSS and Javascript errors.

Konqueror 3.5 passed the test at least a month before Safari.

Oh No :eek: I owe iCab and Alexander Clauss a big apology...

He has pointed out that if you mess around with the default 'font & language' preferences like I did - it can screw up the Acid test - now works OK :D
