Just checked and by golly it is actually almost Acid3 compliant.

Good job Bear

It's using (almost) the same engine as Google Chrome, so yeah :)

It's based on Webkit, but IMO it has issues that I do not see with Safari, Chrome, or the nightly build. I stick with my default browser, it would be nice to have a setting in Eve to open links in the browser of my choosing (outside of the game).

Some things I'd like to see for the IGB:
- open links in the chat window in a new tab instead of the current active tab
- allow to move tabs into new windows
- option to open chromeless windows
- support for websockets and other html5 capabilites
- provide return values for igb functions (eg. to check requestTrust outcome)
- bookmarks for igb urls in your ui panel
- security model that allows you to authenticate the logged in character
- more igb javascript functions

Except from the points above its a really good. :)
