Ive always used firefox since its come out and never looked back. Now that google chrome has come out I have been interested in that and at the same time a little scared to try it out. I have firefox so customized to my own needs that I dont really want to even giver another web browser a chance. Anyone here try out google chrome and find it better then firefox? One thing I do know about firefox which Im not sure about google chrome is that it is a big resource hog on the computer when you are using it. I might have to look into google chrome to see what type of resources it uses up when in use.
I never liked the idea of the ACID tests - it tests the browser on how it renders something that doesn't follow standards at all (by that I mean the code doesn't validate under any standard). Is there supposed to be a standard way to render unstandard markup code? I usually could care less about rendering that and more about a browser supporting newer standards like CSS3.
I'm using a portable version of 3.0.1 at the moment and it's 100% correct.
(Also, interestingly - we still have IE6 at college for some reason. A mate of mine just tried to page and it didn't even open. It tried to download the file for some reason)
I did not see any tests on IE7 or IE8 beta ....and I don't think I need to
I think i can't waste my time and effort into seeing if IE is good or not when I know Firefox is excellent.
In theory IE7 CAN come pretty close to passing ACID2, if you enable some hard to get at "standards compliance" mode. Actually, IE7 marked a pretty big increase in quality over prior versions, quite possibly the biggest "jump" in quality since the changeover from IE 3 to IE 4. Still, Firefox (expecially Firefox 3) is much better.
