Opera Software "Since the test was officially announced recently, our core developers have been hard at work fixing bugs and adding the missing standards support. Today we reached a 100% pass rate for the first time! There are some remaining issues yet to be fixed, but we hope to have those sorted out shortly."

Why does it only matter who ships first? I don't see how a few months is going to make that much of a difference.

Well, it is important to be first for both Opera and Safari. They aim for more customers and they get positive exposure in the media by being first. It is also about credibility. They can now claim that they follow standards better than Firefox. Personally I think it is great that it is getting so much attention since it puts more pressure on IE to comply with web standards.

I also agree.

Maybe Firefox or IE will not lose their popularity if they do not become in 100% standards compliant, but it talk a lot about the care and polish they put into their work.

Occurs the same when you create a program that works with mouse clicks but does not understand anything about tab or arrows or short cuts... your program works and it does what it should do... but if your program supports arrow keys, tab keys, shortcuts, can be used for people with visual problems and have a lot of "polishment", it talks about you and the dedication you put into your final product.
