Acid3 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Actually, it's TOO all-encompassing. I didn't say it was created for Chrome. I didn't say the test was invalid because it was developed by a Google employee. I'm just saying that in the grand scheme of things it's a superficial test that crams in a bunch of things at once. The scores don't mean anything for most users, and in certain ways (not all) they're almost (not totally) irrelevant in real-world conditions.

Chrome did great when Acid3 came out. Best of the bunch. Who made Acid3? A Google employee. I'm not a conspiracy theorist, I'm not claiming Acid3 was built for Chrome. But I'm also not going to pretend the two events are 100% unrelated. On the other hand, I don't care if they are totally related. Chrome did great on the Acid3 test? Big whoop. I like Chrome a lot and it ain't because of the Acid3 test.

What exactly is Acid a standard for, anyway? The absolute maximum a browser can do? Or what the overall standards the web should adhere to, and how a vast majority of users actually use browsers?

Granted, these issues were when Acid3 came out. With these new browsers I don't know if the same criticisms apply - unless there's n 4 on the horizon and it just continues the same philosophy of 3.

Browsers are free, you download and you try them. If it's the fastest, but you didn't like it, it's not the best for you. If anyone only wants the Pied Piper browser, good for them. I'm sporting Opera, often not even tested in these articles. Passed my test. Then again, I have FF and IE 8 too, so there is always choice. Tried Chrome, too plain for me...haven't seen the skinability test results yet A Guy

I call BS. I ran the Aid 3 test on Chrome when the first public build came out. It did better than SeaMonkey, but it did worst than Firefox. I think the score was in the 60s or 70s. Also, Acid 3 came out in March 08, the first beta of Chrome did not become available until September, and the final build was not done until December. In both of your post, you claim Acid 3 came out after Chrome. Don't know where you are getting your info from, but you are wrong on both counts. I actually just ran the test on Chrome. I got 100/100, but the image does not display right. EDIT: running Chrome 5.0.375.99.

Personally, I don't care how great IE9 turns out to be. I really like the way Chrome functions, whether its the fastest browser or not. I don't think IE9 will end up having the same options, so I will stick with what I have for the time being.
