Browsers that do not pass[edit]

Why is Chrome being added to the section on browsers that do not pass? The screenshots and references show that Chrome does pass. -- Schapel (talk) 12:01, 14 April 2012 (UTC)

When I use Chrome to test Acid3, red letters appear on the top left corner, saying, "YOU SHOULD NOT SEE THIS AT ALL". -- anonymous — Preceding unsigned comment added by 75.61.103.72 (talk) 03:35, 12 July 2012 (UTC)

I also got the same problem with firefox 15.0.1 Does that mean, ff does not pass the test? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 93.130.141.14 (talk) 08:56, 17 October 2012 (UTC)

The "YOU SHOULD NOT SEE THIS AT ALL"-Text is with Chrome/Chromium in incognito mode -- 2003:5B:4900:3B00:4DD2:7DD9:4EAF:86D8 (talk) 15:44, 31 August 2013 (UTC) (btw: yea, IPv6 :-P)

I change where said Chrome and Opera did not pass, because they do, thats what said the sources. If you have some reliable sources saying they don't pass, then put it WITH reference.
Also, it obviously said the "YOU SHOULD NOT SEE THIS AT ALL" in incognito mode, because it is testing if the link was visited. It is the expected behavior that does not remember in incognito mode.--Eloy (talk) 07:25, 29 March 2016 (UTC)

Internet Explorer, New test[edit]

I saw score 24/100 in Internet Explorer. Which it was version? Also a new test: http://html5test.com. Latest versions does not score 555/555. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 85.193.247.8 (talk) 12:29, 6 March 2014 (UTC)

  • this is no longer relevant, IE section is expanded now Pallinger (talk) 08:07, 5 October 2015 (UTC)

Article bias[edit]

Comparing an old version of IE against a modern version of Chrome suggests that Chrome is stds compliant when IE is not. The issue is easily fixed by showing IE8 vs IE11, or an old version of Chrome vs a new version of Chrome. 49.195.148.241 (talk) 03:05, 16 April 2015 (UTC)

  • There is no such comparing in the text, at least now. Pallinger (talk) 08:10, 5 October 2015 (UTC)

Article is extremely biased[edit]

The use of IE to demonstrate a poor Acid3 score is extremely biased. Maybe use some older, lesser known browser for this example that doesn't have such an intense rivalry with Firefox. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 69.65.91.78 (talk) 08:49, 13 June 2015 (UTC)

If you refer to the picture, they show the result of the test around the time the test was created, and show the results for the three major desktop browsers. You can add additional browsers's screenshots that you know, but they will not be as relevant as these three. I would not call this biased. Pallinger (talk) 08:17, 5 October 2015 (UTC)
Mmmhhh… two anonymous messages, almost the same, at least one with Fort Lauderdale IP (where Microsoft has a major headquarter[1]) complaining about alleged against Microsoft bias…
It looks suspicious at least. It means nothing at the time to evaluate the alleged non-neutrality; but it means a lot outside: we have to take care of this "contributions".
The Ft. Lauderdale IP has some other suspicious edits, like this one. And also some strange edits like this :O.
