Browsers Vs HTML5
As we said before all browsers getting updated and one of the reason is HTML5. Here is how our latest builds scored in HTML5 test,
#1. Google Chrome 9.0.568.0 Build 64415
We must agree, right now Google Chrome is the best browser to test HTML5 tags. As you can see in the image, Chrome 9 build scores 271(262 + 9 Bonus) out of 377 points.
#2. Firefox 4 Beta 8 Pre
Well Mozilla team is already well behind their schedule and Firefox 4 is kept on delaying. Hope they will stick to their new schedule and release Firefox 4 by early 2011. As compared to Beta 6 Firefox has updated few HTML5 elements.
#3. Opera 11 Alpha
Opera team is working somewhat similar to Google Chromium team and releasing some better browser versions. Opera recently shifted to ver.11 with alpha tag. Well the latest version of Opera scored 230 out of 377 which are well ahead of previous version (210/377).
#4. Safari 5.0.2 webkit 70599
Apple’s Safari browser also got some updates and scored 198(196 + 2 bonus) out of 377. Hope they will wake up and catch up with Browsers war.
#5. Internet Explorer 9 PP6
Internet Explorer 9 was expected to be one of the best browser and it failed to impress. IE9 Beta 1 too got some ultimate features and still updating HTML5. Compared to previous test, this time IE9 scored 95(90 + 5 bonus) out of 133 points.
These are latest results of HTML5 test which we tested with all the latest browser versions. As always Chrome top the list and considered as best browser for HTML5 updates.
