Microsoft’s Internet Explorer 9 and 10 browsers both pass the infamous Acid3 test thanks to changes by its authors.
Google employee Ian Hickson and Opera employee Håkon Wium Lie both announced changes to the Acid3 test on Saturday. The changes will allow more browsers to pass the test and focus on allowing the specs to change according to what’s best for the web. ”As the Web matures, we have made a concerted effort to improve the precision of Web technology specifications,” said Hickson in a Google+ post on Saturday.”We’re trying to simplify parts of the platform that still haven’t received broad use,” he added before explaining that the Acid3 test has been changed. “+Håkon Wium Lie and I are announcing that we have updated the Acid3 test by commenting out the parts of the test that might get changed in the specs.”
