Apple Apple released the Safari 4 Beta today. Features: Tabs on top. "Top Sites" 'Speed Dial' feature. "Smart" address/search fields. HTML5 Canvas. HTML5 Audio/Video (though no Ogg). Acid 3. CSS Animation/Gradients/Masks/Reflection. CSS Web Fonts. New "Nitro" Javascript engine - "Up to 4 times faster than Firefox 3.1". 'Native' look and native font rendering on Windows Vista/XP. I can think of only one thing: "Now witness the firepower of this fully armed and operational battle station!"

Check your details.

Opera claimed to pass it first. But there was a bug in the test, which the Safari team found. Once this bug was corrected, Safari was the first one to get 100/100 in Acid 3.

But getting 100/100 is not enough to pass the test. The browser also has to render the animation smoothly with a certain maximum time per test.

Safari with it's new JS engine manages to do that. Opera's JS engine isn't fast enough to do that yet. So Opera only passes a part of the text.
