I'm hoping IE9 is a great browser. I'd doubt it would make me switch from Opera, as it is the best browser for me. Acid and peacekeeper tests are nice, but when I give it the A Guy test, that's when I decide

I have a 3.2GHz Core 2 Quad, 4GB DDR2 and 15Mbps down for internet access. At no point is any browser not fast.

The only thing that hardware acceleration does is do 2D rendering on the graphics card. The only point that it would make a difference is if you were using something like an Intel Atom CPU. Otherwise, the difference will be negligible to the human eye.

Makes ya wonder why FF first release does 97 out of the gate...

Because they decided to write code specifically to an artificial and unsanctioned, random trest designed by a guy according to his personal interpretation of the very interpretable standards?

Acid 3 is not any kind of official web body standard test by any means.

It's just one of potentially thousands of tests that people could randomly come up with and wheather or not a browser developer group decides to specifically code to pass the test or not depends on what they think they are going to get out of doing so.

ha - adding to what fseal said, it doesn't really matter if you prove it (assuming you were refering to the 100/100 score.) Acid 3 ain't the be-all, end-all for browser testing. It's about as superficial as you can get, but for some reason people still think it's got serious clout.

I would also add that Acid3 wasn't written by just some guy. It was written by some guy who works at Google. Gee, I wonder what browser came out on top when Acid3 was released?

I'm going to assume someone wasn't calling bull*** on me. I wouldn't care for that regardless of the fact that Opera is well known to score 100/100 on Acid 3. So that must have been directed at someone else. Since I posted a screenshot, and surely he wasn't calling me a liar. A Guy

Acid 3 may not be an all encompassing test, but it is quite valid, and it was not created just for Chrome. It was around before Chrome ever twinkled an eye. The fact that a Google employee was one of the developers (Acid 2), doesn't invalidate it, and it has become a standard:

Correct. Acid 3 isn't like an official W3C test or anything, but it's certainly well-respected and accurate. Just because it's not an "official" standard doesn't mean it's totally ineffective.

That said, it shouldn't be considered the sole determinant of what browser is best either.
