Acid2 is a year old now, and recent beta builds of Opera 9 now support the test. HÃ¥kon Wium Lie, CTO of Opera Software and one of the contributing authors to the Acid2 test, says:

“Some people thought Acid2 would be easy for Opera since we were involved in shaping the test. Not so. Acid2 rightfully exposed many bugs in Opera and we have squashed them, one by one.”

The next challenge for Opera? “Getting that smiley face on phones” Lie says.

There’s also mumblings regarding an Acid3 test or suite, this would be authored by a collaborative group including representatives from major browser and software developers.
