  dth 16:17 12 Dec 2005

Has anyone tested IE7 against this standards test?

Just curious to see how well it does.

The IE 7 developers have already said that it will not pass the Acid Test 2; but Firefox and Opera don't pass it either.

I'm just very grateful that the development team decided to take on the HTML & CSS issues; the stated reason for the early development of IE7 was security so they could have left standards support till a later release.

as part of my beta testing of Windows Vista, and I'm hoping to see some changes when I get the next beta version.

I shan't ask: I already know that even the threat of unimaginable horrors will not loosen your tongue. I'd offer to bribe you but I can't afford Le Manoir.

Regarding Vista; when MS eventually releases you and the other Beta1 testers from your contractual shackles, will you let us know your thoughts on the new OS?

As a regular early adopter of new MS OSs, I'd love to read some expert assessments in the next few months.

Opera has almost passed - Safari has passed (but the version that passed is not released yet) - iCab (for Mac - at public Beta stage) - and Konqueror (open source). Firefox close behind. click here

Konqueror and Safari are both based on on KHTML page rendering.

Open Source software out in front here, methinks.

According to WaSP the release of Mac OS X 10.4.3 on October 31st made Safari RSS (version 2.0.2/416.12) officially the first public release, non-beta, non-preview browser to pass the test.

If only I could.

I think that Vista will give up its secrets before too long, and that will include IE 7 of course.

Now MS Office 12, there's a Non Disclosure Agreement of ever I saw one. I'm into my second week of serious testing on that now, and I must say........but then I mustn't, or they'll do something terrible to me, like take away my First Resource beta tester's rugby shirt, and I wear that around the house all the time.

Yup - quite correct - it's not the easiest it on info to spot n the WaSP site - and I missed it (I plead old age only) :-))
