Webcompat issues

(a selection of some of the bugs worked on this week).

  • When your design is only working in Blink and probably not because the developer meant to make it work for Blink, but probably because it was only tested with this rendering engine.
  • A problem with PNG, not being sure of the origin of the issue, I opened a bug on Core/ImageLib. The PNG file is working in WebKit and Blink, not in Gecko.
  • When a Gecko/Firefox rendering issue is in fact a Blink/Chrome bug, probably inherited from Webkit/Safari. This is a symptom of a pattern where one rendering engine is trusted and not checked against specs and other browsers.
  • Going through a lot of the Web sites, around 100 of them to assess the ones which are working and those who are failing. I should probably something about it. development
