The shrugging your shoulders at the acid3 test is the worst action I've seen for so long, I won’t directly call anybody ignorant but I'm definitely implying that if MS ignores such an important standard I don't care how much GPU rendering power you've got,
you'll lose to others in the sea which can eat bigger fish.
These tests are MASSIVELY important and are not just a spec test, it’s an implementation coverage test to which IE really REALLY fails on with flying bombs all over the place, and I truly hope they pick their feet up. The spec does indeed test for the corner
cases on implementation, but that very reason is why web pages can be browser agnostic and consumable by any engine, IE needs to play better in the web space to the extreme compared to current performance. Sure as an OS and hardware abstraction, Windows is
indeed top class. But IE is soooooooo hoooorrriibbllyyy SHITTY GUYS so much that I'm surprisingly not ashamed one bit for being completely honest in my opinion about the subject of the IE team trying to live in their own self-created world to think outside
their own renderer.
IE team, for the love of god and anything holy, there is a big reason all other web browsers do their best to conform to passing the acid3 because it enables the crap-ton of bad * amateur code that the renderer HAS to be able to handle. The browser is
the gateway app to an internet full of malware, if it tries to only focus on the cases its good at or is strong, then it will fail easier when trying to be broken or even by accident. The acid3 to me is a robustness of implementation test, and my 100% true
recommendation to the IE team is at least try to play nice with the others, to let them live on without too big a grudge against the IE.
So sure I've been harsh to IE but I just feel I had to vent on how amazingly frustrated it made me watching the team not be ashamed of their suboptimal 32 score on the acid3 from their own smugness and denial of importance it truly is as an implementation
safety net mechanism to close all the loose ends which IE leaves untied and hanging loose.
I really want them to pass the test (at least try yo improve their conformance) because it’s important for the very thing they try and tout about, interoperability.
Aim for this sort of goodness Good luck IE, were all counting on you!!
