Holy Cow! I know this isn't new news. IE8 and FireFox 3.. Acid 2 tests, heck Acid 3 tests. When is it going to stop?!?
However, To make applications like the one I'm developing work in a real world environment, they need to be efficient. That means that if I'm going to be doing collision detection on vehicle labels (so they don't overlap) I would rather use a few extra bits of memory to remember the answers from complicated math (storing the values that are returned by using COS / SIN calculations) than to have to calculate them each time. If you didn't know anything done using COS, SIN, TAN etc. are extremely expensive.
I know... to better humanity and all other species on this earth, new web browsers are pertinent in order to form an electronic self sustaining ecosystem. Anyways, WHY! I already have 4 browsers to test (IE7, FireFox 2.0, Opera, safari... stupid Safari), and now I need to test on 2 more? You know, the day when those 2 browsers (or days) get released I'll forget to test on them and I'll get over 100 emails in my inbox stating that my website broke the internet (if that were true then I'd really have something to blog about).
Can we invest more money in holograms like on Star Trek so I can get a duplicate to do the testing? I know testing is the bestest most funnestest thing ever and that programmers everywhere are running at the opportunity to test... but I'll sacrifice my ego and let my hologram clone do it for me.
Ok I'll stop whining now.
