Chrome 7 beats other browsers in HTML5 Test!

browsers race html5 test

Google is working hard on its next upcoming browser version- Chromium 7 and is trying to implement many more new features which were missing Β in it’s previous release.

Recently we heard, Google Chrome 7 is all about GPU acceleration to improve the overall graphics performance. Previously we found that GPU acceleration can be manually activated in Chrome, But soon after Google confirmed that “there’s been a lot of work going on to overhaul Chromium’s graphics system” and the browser will “begin to take advantage of the GPU to speed up its entire drawing model.”

But we were surprised to see that Google is also improving many other features as well. While testing recent Chrome 7.0.522 Build, Chrome showed massive update on HTML 5 test.

No wonder that Google is concentrating more on HTML 5 features, so that next generation web developers can make most out of it. Chrome / Chromium 7 still missing some main elements in Video and Audio tags. Mpeg-2, MP3, AAC formats are still missing.

Chrome 7 is having 10 elements as partially meta tags. All these elements is waiting for a “Value sanitization” feature to be updated. If Google Chrome team updates these features then no wonder it may cross 300 points and above.

Google Chrome 7 HTML 5 Test

We found that current stable version, Chrome 6 has got many new features and we saw the total change in visual style. To match this changes Firefox started copying Chrome features and tagged to new name “Chromified Firefox”.

Firefox 4 Beta 5 HTML 5 Test

Firefox 4 beta 5 also showed good improvement in HTML 5 test,but still behind Chrome and stayed on second spot.

Opera 10.61 HTML 5 Test

Opera 10.62 release stayed on 3rd place with 210 points (203 + 7 bonus) out of 377.

Apple Safari 5 HTML 5 Test

Apple’s Safari is still lagging behind and there is no improvement in HTML 5 features!

Internet Explorer 9 HTML 5 Test

We can’t miss Internet Explorer 9 in the list, as Microsoft spoke much about HTML 5 updates and said IE 9 will be the fastest browser among others. But the final platform preview 4 didn’t impress in HTML 5 test. Many HTML 5 elements are not yet integrated and hence performing poorly in HTML 5 tests.

With only few HTML 5 elements, IE 9 didn’t show any impressing factor and hence stays at the bottom.

These are the current HTML 5 update on all the top browsers. We are still waiting for first beta of IE 9 which is expected to go online onΒ SeptemberΒ 15, 2010.

    Why does it say 79 out of 133 for IE9 while the rest are out of 377?

    79/133 is basically the same ratio as FF Beta 4, and higher than Opera.

    So why isn't it #3 in the list?

      Numbers here specifies the score allotted for each HTML5 elements buddy.

      Currently the PP4 of IE9 is having very less elements compared to other browsers πŸ™‚

      So, its placed in #5 place πŸ™‚ Hope your doubt got cleared πŸ™‚ Thanks for your comment πŸ™‚

      In addition to my previous post: The difference between the Windows and OSX version of Safari is based on the lack of HTML5 audio and video support. Windows Safari no, Mac Safari yes.

      1. Vinay Gowda says:

        These tests are performed on Windows platform Knalli πŸ™‚ Thanks for the updates on Safari HTML5 test πŸ™‚

    Well, and guess what? It was bullshit (my last post). I'd tested Safari on Windows 7 in VM. 220 points. Strange things.

    I now use google chrome but I still have Firefox for backup. it pays to have a plan B

    1. Vinay Gowda says:

      Having a top 2 browsers is a nice strategy Elise πŸ™‚ Which browser you like most? Chrome or FF??

    It is not really fare to make conclusions like this between final versions and beta versions.

    Take the latest stable build of each browser… and Chrome will no longer be on top.

  7. usi says:

    I am very happy with chrome for now, but some times it stops loading, like I opened a new window put an address in the bar and it is not working! I hate this, I hope this will be solved.

    and let me know if anyone facing this problem as well?

    Since you tested the beta and preview builds of IE, Chrome and Fx, it would have only been fair to test the latest Opera 10.70 snapshot, instead of Opera 10.62.
