Impressive, isn’t it. The good thing about it is that it will accelerate standards compliance for all browsers.
I saw it today. Checked it with two different browsers (Firefox and Safari) in two different computers. Looked the same as the image below. Don’t know how long is it like this. The question is how long it will remain…
A new kid is on the block: since Monday morning Google’s new browser, Chrome, has been the most hot discussion topic on the internet. And, I guess, lots of people, all over the world,, are punching keys franticaly as we ‘speak’ , to test it.
Here is my contribution to the buzz. How does the new browser behave in terms of standards compatibility? Let’s take the tests.
Which means 100% compatibility.
ACID3 gives :
which means 78% compliance. Were it 100% it should look like this:
How do these results compare to the browsers on the market? I have run the same test on all the known browsers that pass the ACID2 test and here are the results. All the test were run on a Windows XP with SP2.
So Chrome does a fairly good job in ACID3, but still trails Opera.
Update: I just spotted an article on CNET about Chrome’s standards compliance.Instead of comparing IE8 it compares IE7 on the Acid3 test and gives a result of 14% which I could not confirm. The acid servers were very slow to respond but when they did I just got a 12% as in IE8.
