It seems that Mozilla will refuse to fix their browser so that it gets a 100/100 score on the Acid3 test. Instead, they have decided to explain not only why they won't, but also claim that it's actually a good thing.
Fine. That's their call. But calling it "mythbusting" while spreading myths of their own? That's not very nice, now is it? …
Good thing we have one of the guys actually working on SVG at Opera to set the record straight. Not only did Opera implement SVG Fonts back in 2005, long before Acid3 was created, but they actually do have uses, contrary to Mozilla's claims.
At the end of his article, Alexander Limi requests that people link to his article:
The next time someone posts a comment about how Firefox still doesn’t score 100 on Acid3, please link them to this article.
Based on the facts at hand, I'd like to follow up his request with a request of my own:
The next time someone posts a comment about how Firefox still doesn't score 100 on Acid3 and someone else links to that article, please link to Erik's article mythbusting Mozilla's mythbusting.
Maybe someone else will respond to Erik's mythbusting of Mozilla's mythbusting, and eventually we'll have a whole chain of mythbusters mythbusting other mythbusters…
