However, because of structural simplicity, Chrome clearly more possession of a number of advantages. 2, compatibility evaluation Four browser can through the Acid2 test perfectly. This means that in the face of most pages, they are able to faithfully original web page displayed. However, in the face of the more demanding Acid3 standards, but easily decide the winner and the winner. Compared to other three browsers, IE8 in this part of the test, the worst offenders. Total score of only 21/100. By contrast, Firefox, Opera, Chrome three or less.
