Oh noes! The horror! And this affects us... how? ACID2 is a combination of rigid standards taken to extremes, that you're never going to find on regular web pages. It carries a certain meaning for browser developers, but I doubt any browser user should lose any sleep over it.

Thank you for your sanity check. Apparently people like to panic over nonsense. The fact that it works well as a browser for all the sites I visit is more important.

I'm sure the Linux people have noticed that fugly XUL widgets have been replaced with native GTK ones for input fields and such. It took a while but it is finally there. Memory use is also down since apparently the memory leaks that were not a problem were mostly fixed now. Also the classic theme blends into Gnome's themes now too. It is nice I don't have to download a new theme now. The only caveat with FF 3 is that all the extensions need to be bumped up in version number and tested against FF 3.
