IE8 Pass the Acid2 test

\"Acid2\"I thought hell is already freezing when I read this news. Internet Explorer 8 reached a very unexpected milestone — IE8 passed the Acid2 test!

In order to pass this test, the browser has to be compliant on standards of HTML and CSS rendering. Safari, Opera and beta version of Firefox 3.0 pass the Acid2 test. IE8 somehow surprised me because Microsoft used to be too arrogant in creating their own \”standards\”. I thought they didn\’t care but now they are trying to be standard compliant… for real? I still can\’t believe I\’m blogging about this.
