Acid3 test in the works

Now that all the major browsers have passed the Acid2 test, Ian Hickson has started work on the next challenge to the browser makers. Acid2 focused on HTML and CSS standards. Acid3, on the other hand, will focus on the DOM and ECMAScript.I think this is EXCELLENT news, because my biggest gripes lately about web browsers have been about the differences in how JavaScript works. I hope the major browser vendors get on this quickly, as soon as Acid3 is released.John Resig has posted some screenshots showing how the major browsers render the current unfinished Acid3 test. It’s no big surprise that IE does the worst job of rendering the test. The “nightly” build of Safari renders Acid3 the best, while Firefox 3 beta is the next best.
