Internet Explorer Recently, Microsoft released Internet Explorer 8, which boasted much better standards compliance than previous iterations of the browser. While it passed the Acid2 test, IE8 failed miserably in the Acid3 test, and many people criticised Microsoft for it. Microsoft Australia's Nick Hodge has stated that Microsoft purposefully decided not to support Acid3, because the test tests against draft standards.

Do what the others do...


The others being WebKit, Opera, and Gecko? Who have about a .9% broswer market share combine? Firefox 3 isn't supporting Acid 3.

Watch your announcement. All other browsers have more than 30% market share. Your statement about FireFox on Acid3 might be valid, but your careless reasoning has counteracted its validity.

That stat depends on your source. I've seen places saying that, and others saying IE still has 80%+ market share. Firefox and alternatives seem to be more popular in Europe, but not so much here in America.

Firefox 3.1 scores 94 out of 100 for Acid 3 compliance.

IE8 scores only 20.
