Just downloaded and installed the IE 8 beta and guess what – it really passes the ACID2 CSS tests. This is great news for developers everywhere. This is another piece of good news after the latest decision by the IE team to have IE 8 interpret web content in the most standards compliant way it can, by default instead of some Quirks mode. By the way, the Acid2 Browser Test is a test page, written to help browser vendors ensure proper support for web standards in their products. Kudos to the IE team.
