Five years ago it was announced that Konqueror is the second browser of all to pass Acid2.
Just for fun I thought to check how KHTML is doing these days and ran Acid 2 and 3 with it. Well… how times change…
Interestingly enough, the red nose bug is triggered by running Acid3 before. The rendering glitches next to the eyes only appear when you enter http://acid2.acidtests.org/#top directly into the URL bar. If you instead first browse to http://acid2.acidtests.org/ and then click to take the test, that glitch doesn’t exist. Running Acid3 before doesn’t seem to affect the eye bug.
Even weirder, as mentioned in the year old bug report, if you try to run Acid3 again after running it once, the test doesn’t even start.
So, in case any KHTML dev reads Planet KDE, I suggest that you take a look at the bug report and investigate why one website (in this case Acid3) affects how another site renders.
