Good news for web developers… Good news for all. I downloaded Firefox 3 beta 2 today and did a quick acid2 test and it passed beautifully! So because both IE 8 and FF 3 will both pass this test, it means that both browsers will meet the SAME standards, so there will be less developing for one browser, and then tweaking for the other one… this means pages will more likely look more similar in firefox and ie giving the user the look and feel that the designer intended, and will mean designers will spend far less time tweaking style sheets and monkeying with javascript code.

Currently the only browser that passes the acid2 test is Opera 9.24ish and later. opera has really come a long way and has some nice features for web surfers, and obviously it is Leading the charge for browser standards compliance…
