Opera 9 Passes Acid2 Test

How long before other browsers fall into line?

From HowToCreate [howtocreate.co.uk]

Opera 9 now passes the Acid 2 test, making it the second browser to do so. And yes, I can count. Safari passed first, and Opera is second. Konqueror and iCab almost pass (and claim to pass), but they both fail to apply one of the styles required by the test, and as a result they display a scrollbar even though they shouldn't (the Acid 2 guide neglects to mention this style, but see the source code for the test itself).

The build is avaliable for Windows, Mac and Unix variants, so you should be able to see that smiley face and "Hello World!" at last.

Good to see it joining Safari and iCab (and Prince of course :) ). Hopefully Gecko will follow suit once the graphics layer is transitioned to Cairo as well.
