Acid Test For iPhone Browsers: Safari Wins, Opera Fails

This image described by iPhone, safari, opera mini, Acid3 Test, Opera-mini-acid-test

The Acid3 Test is a standardized rendering test of web browsers (both desk and mobile) in which any score under 100 is considered a “failure.”  As you can see from the above screen caps, Safari on the iPhone gets a perfect 100 — while the new Opera Mini browser comes in a distant second with 74.

(To put this in perspective: this writer’s day-job computer, running IE 6.0 — yeah, we’re not exactly cutting edge here — scored a 12.  A twelve…)
When we reviewed the Opera Mini browser for iPhone, we totally forgot to run this test.  Mea maxima culpa.
