Testing Pre-Release Firefox 3.0 Beta 5

Mozilla Firefox 3.0 Beta 5 should be released soon (within one or two weeks), but i can't wait to see what changes has been made to comply with Acid3 Test (since Opera and Safari has made an official announcement that their internal build has passed the test completely). So i downloaded a Pre-Release of Firefox 3.0 Beta 5 (NOTE: This is still BETA, NOT YET RC) and give it a try.

It does improved a little bit compared to the previous fourth Beta, since the point has increased from 66 to 71 (it's not that much, but it's not yet a final version of Beta 5, so improvements is still possible). I'm hoping that the final version in June will have 100% compliance with the test.


  1. Firefox 3 won't pass all of the acid 3 sub-tests. Neither did Safari 3.1 which just shipped or neither will Opera 9.5 which is about to ship.

    The test came too late to make it into any of the current releases for Opera, Safari and Mozilla and all of the work you're seeing is for the _next_ releases of those products not the current releases.

  2. Thanks for the clarification Asa :)
    Will it be supported in next Firefox release ? say 3.1 or 3.5.
