Hallelujah! IE8 Passes the Acid2 Test

December 20th, 2007

We thought this day would never come: Internet Explorer 8 now renders the "Acid2 Face" correctly in IE8 standards mode!

Apparently we can expect to see Internet Explorer 8 in at least Beta form in early 2008. According to the IE blog:

The key goal (for the Web Standards Project as well as many other groups and individuals) is interoperability. As a developer, I’d prefer to not have to write the same site multiple times for different browsers. Standards are a (critical!) means to this end, and we focus on the standards that will help actual, real-world interoperability the most.

Sounds like the IE team has finally seen the light! :)
