I read this news at kakkoi recently, following up on announcements at IEblog about their recent glorified claimed with IE8 ACID2 Milestone .

Acid 2

ie8 pass acid2 - acid2 failed w3cFor those who doesn’t know much bout CSS specifications. ACID2 is a standard CSS Test page maintained by The Web Standards groups. This is where Browser Vendor test their Browser CSS rendering capability. The first batch to pass this test is opera 9.1, icab (osx) & Firefox 3a.

Workaround: Disabling JavaScript in the browser does not protect against this attack; in vulnerable versions scripts passed through the -chrome option would be executed regardless of the JavaScript setting for web content, much as interpreters for languages such as Perl and Python execute scripts passed on the command line. The NoScript add-on, however, has provided protection against this class of attack since the cross-browser vulnerabilities described by MFSA 2007-23 were discovered. ~ Mozilla Foundation Security Advisory 2007-28
