HTML5 is still being developed as the next major revision of the HTML markup language. You can test your web browser how well it already supports HTML5. Visit html5test.com and put your browser to the test. There are 160 elements that are tested on the site. I put all of my Mac browsers to the test: Firefox, Safari, and Chrome. Chrome scored the highest by far.
In addition to my Mac, I also tested Internet Explorer 8 on Windows XP. Its score was absolutely abysmal. If I were a Windows user, I’d never use Internet Explorer, regardless of the version installed.
I’ve listed my results below.
- Mozilla Firefox 3.6.3 – Score 101
- Apple Safari 4.0.5 – Score 113
- Google Chrome 5.0 – Score 142
- Internet Explorer 8.0 – Score 19
