Ever wonder why webpages look awful in the Internet browser? It’s mostly because despite Internet standards having been published for long periods of time, many developers simply choose to not adhere to them. As a means of providing a common test for all browsers to utilize, the WebStandardsProject released the new ACID3 compliance test. Thus far, browsers are failing the ACID3 test with abysmal compliance scores. Back in 2005, Apple’s Safari 2 browser was amongst the few mainstream applications to actually adhere to the standards by passing the ACID2 test.
