HTML5 the fifth revision of HTML standards is still under development. But all the browser makers have started supporting the latest HTML tags. Chrome was the known browser which supported most of the tags. Maxthon, a relatively less known web browser, beats all major browsers on HTML5 Test standards.
Maxthon, originally known as MyIE2, is a free web browser for Microsoft Windows, and is also available on Android as Maxthon Mobile. The latest release, version 3, supports both the Trident and the WebKit rendering engines. Initially developed using Trident engine, but now has WebKit as its default engine.
It was a shocking for us when we started testing browsers with latest build. Recently, I was added to a Facebook group called “Maxthon Browser”. I was very curious to know about it and, hence installed this browser and performed the HTML5 test.
Well the results are here. Maxthon browser supports most of the HTML5 tags when compared to leading and well-known browsers.
