The latest release of Safari (v2.02) – released in Mac OS X 10.4.3 today, now passes the Acid2 test – wohoo!
Acid2 is a test page, written by the Web Standards Project, to help browser vendors ensure proper support for web standards in their products.
Safari is now ahead of every major browser in its support for web standards – Firefox, Flock, Opera all fail to render the Acid2 image correctly and don’t even mention Microsoft Internet Explorer!
The next version of Internet Explorer (IE7) will be released soon and what do you think are the chances that it will pass the Acid2 test?

It could be – as with that famous build of Firefox (?) that also passed Acid 2 – that it was specifically hacked to do this.
This is the danger with benchmarks (as has happened repeatedly with both ATi and nVidia being caught cheating on 3DMark).
This is something Apple have been working on for quite some time – and they released a lot of the code afaik so that Konquerer (which uses the same khtml engine) also passes the test.
Good news, but all it really means is that WASP will come up with a new test.
This is the danger with benchmarks.
