Another great step forward for the Internet community. Two of the underdogs in the browser world, Webkit which is used for Safari, many new mobile devices, is part of QT4 and has a GTK port available and Opera which is an alternative browser for all platforms and is used on the Wii have passed the Acid 3 test.

These tests use edge cases in the standards to try and trip browsers up, and cause them to fail. This failing was meant to get browsers to become more aware of the standards.
