Konqueror now passes Acid2

As the title says, Acid2 is now passed.

With the help of Hyatt's Safari patches, Ivor Hewitt(*) and I have finally made Konqueror pass Acid2 as only the second browser.

Roughly half of the Safari Acid2 patches could be merged in some form or another, and another two bugfixes could be merged from Safari 1.3 once found and isolated. The rest was written from scratch. All in all not a bad reuse of code, allthough slow.

The fixes are at the moment in KDE 3.5 branch, but will soon be merged into KDE4, and evaluated for KDE 3.4.2 inclusion.

(*) Ivor is a new KHTML developer, and author of the adblock feature.


When taking the test, you should use the default settings of the browser you are testing. Changing the zoom level, minimum font size, applying a fit-to-width algorithm, or making other changes may alter the rendition of the Acid2 page without this constituting a failure in compliance.

Great and unbelievable!)
As far as i know for a long while the only browser that passed Acid2 test was Safari.

Reusing blocs of code can sometimes take up more time. I prefer to restart typing a new program. Sometimes I find better ways to get where I want, ways I'd ignore if I reused the same code.
