Acid3: Putting Browser Makers on Notice (March 6, 2008)
The Web Standards Project (WaSP) announced the release of Acid3,
the latest in a line of tests designed to expose flaws in the
implementation of mature Web standards in Web browsers. By making sure
their software adheres to the test, the creators of these products can
be more confident that their software will display and function with
Web pages correctly both now and with Web pages of the future.

The Acid3 Test is designed to test specifications for Web 2.0, and
exposes potential flaws in implementations of the public ECMAScript 262
and W3C Document Object Model 2 standards. Collectively known as DOM
Scripting, it is these technologies that enable advanced page
interactivity and power many advanced web applications such as
web-based email and online office applications.
As a series of 100 mini-tests, Acid3 has already been found to expose
flaws in all tested browsers, including Internet Explorer, Firefox,
Opera, and Safari. WaSP hopes that Acid3 will prove useful to browser
makers during the development of future versions of their products.
is the third in a
series of test pages written to help browser vendors ensure proper
support for web standards in their products. More on Acid3 can be found here
