Konqueror conquers Acid2

December 1, 2005

Konqueror, KDE's Linux-based browser, became the second browser to pass the Acid2 test.

From the article:

Apple's Safari browser was the first, which makes use of Konqueror's advanced rendering engine KHTML. Thanks to some fixes that were integrated back into Konqueror from Safari improvements, and the hard work of the KHTML programmers, Konqueror can now boast a high level of CSS compliance.

I believe this brings to Linux an advanced web standards compliant rendering. It's also interesting to note that Safari is based on Konqueror's rendering engine.
