Hi all,

I don't know whether this is the right newsgroup, but I didn't find any
better.

I have got a really simple question: Is Gecko 1.9, respectively Firefox
3, going to pass the Acid2-Test? As far as I know, KHTML passed it at
first, now it seems that Opera will follow.

Is there any discussion on this topic, where opinions to this can be found?

Greetings

Christoph

That's the plan. AFAIK we have two layout bugs left, which should be
fixed by dbaron's reflow branch, which we plan to land for 1.9.

Nice. At least, FF will pass the test before IE does. ;)

Yes, nice to know if someone passes such a test. But let's realize that
a good rendering engine is not about rendering strange specialized
testcases witzh not much real-world use perfectly, but tendering real
web pages out there well, and performing well on really used parts of
specs like CSS. And Gecko is still way ahead of KHTML in real-world use.

Yes, we have bugs, and yes, they are being worked on. And yes, people
also look at those testcases and try to fix them, but they might not
always be highest priority.

That said, I'm no developer of Gecko, I'm only expressing my personal
opinion as someone working on a Gecko-based project (SeaMonkey).

BTW, I'm quite sure that there's a bug report in Bugzilla that deals
with passing Acid2.
