Opera and the Acid3 Test

,

We have some excellent news! Lars Erik Bolstad, the Head of Core Technology at Opera Software, sent me the following information to share:



I have a quick update on where we are with Acid3.
Since the test was officially announced recently, our Core developers have been hard at work fixing bugs and adding the missing standards support.
Today we reached a 100% pass rate for the first time! There are some remaining issues yet to be fixed, but we hope to have those sorted out shortly.

We will release a technical preview version on labs.opera.com within the next week or so. For now, the screenshot above shows the Acid3 test as rendered in our latest WinGogi Desktop build. WinGogi is the Windows version of our reference builds used for the internal testing of Opera's platform independent Core.

Happy EasterPublic Acid3 build

Will this make it into the standard weekly, or be a seperate dev stream, like the <video> stuff?

Any news on fixing of the String Regex stuff, that brings Operas overall score down badly in the recent Opera vs Firefox 3B4 tests?

:eyes: OMG! You guys are insane!!! I'm so fucking happy and proud to be using Opera :yes:
And thinking that I may have influenced even a single IF or CASE in there somewhere through those bug reports and suggestions makes me feel all warm on the inside :smile:

Keep up the excellent work, you are the greatest!

Okay, so I'm a geek.

Oh my god.

I knew Opera will be the first browser to achieve 100%.
Keep up the good work and start publishing this news in the net for the rest of the world knows that Opera is the first browser to get 100% in the Acid3 test.

Offtopic: big OPERA DESKTOP TEAM header should be a link to blog. I don't see any link from this page to "parent": http://my.opera.com/desktopteam/

A quick google for "WinGogi" returns a bunch of usage statistics. Looks like the name's in the user agent string too, then.

Quick, lets see if opera devs were surfing porn! :D

Hi folks, my super-ultra-secret-internal-only browser also have Acid3 passed. Here you are the screenshot: http://acid3.acidtests.org/reference.html :rolleyes: :lol:

To be serious, the only proof of passing the test suite is *public* released version of browser.

Seriously that's nuts!

Can you guys make a comment on whether or not the support for hsla,rgba and @font-face will make it to Opera 9.5 when it's released?

By Fyrd, # 26. March 2008, 19:49:59

avatar
Wow, good work! Honestly, it seemed as if the WebKit developers would pass it first, because of their oft-updated blog. Congrats for doing it first.

Now, who will make the first stable release?

Congrats!
I just hope the great news won't prevent us from getting a new build this week!

I remember that the last time this subject was tackled, opra only rendered 77/100 and safary 93/100. Any news on how safari's doing, and if opera is the first to get 100%?

Congratulations! Another record for opera dev team!

By Spurlos, # 26. March 2008, 19:55:21

Rogue, unlike recently announced "internal" Opera you can check personally how far Safari/Webkit are in Acid3 by downloading public available Webkit nightly from: http://nightly.webkit.org.

Usually don't do this, but this time: Congratulation, developers! :smile:

Great. Now can you please stop working on your browser? It's good enough.

If, instead, you could help those poor Microsoft people catch up, all of us multi-browser devs would appreciate it.

Well done devs! :smile:

Okay, guess we'll just wait and see then. :smile:

Zyph: FWIW, although the Desktop Team kick ass, passing Acid3 is down to the Core team.

congratulations!! well done!

Congrats Opera Dev team!

Personally, I agree with sentio, the real test is who becomes the first RELEASED browser to support Acid 3. The people I develop for do not use internal, nightly, or beta builds. I want Acid 3 support in a released browser - anything else is meaningless to me!
