IE8 passes Acid2

Congratulations to the IE team on making IE8 pass ACID2. The IE Blog post goes on and on about why backwards compatibility is so important to the IE team. You can skip all that and just read the last three paragraphs before Dean Hachamovitch’s signature. Bottom line is this is a big milestone for the web, and it will be an even bigger milestone when they ship the thing. Still waiting on word about more support for the other standards they’ve been ignoring/sabotaging for years, like ECMAScript, but I’m not holding my breath.

My favorite smart-aleck comment was from Dave Shea:

 IE8. Acid2. Better bundle up, it’s a cold one in hell today.
