HTML5 Test for Mobile Browsers

14/12/2011 at 12:16 pm Leave a comment

The HTML5 is one of the most promising upcoming standards. It has been faring very well against Flash and I am largely in favor of it. Niels Leenheer has come up with a new site that tells you approximately how well your browser renders HTML5.

The html5test assorts your browser a score upto 160, based on whether or not it supports the new features of HTML5. The test is not fully complete yet and is under development as of now.

Apart from the total score, the test also shows exactly which feature is supported and groups the results into easy to compare sections. Ideal for developers wanting to keep track of the capabilities of the browsers they develop for. In fact, the whole test started out just as a small internal tool for doing just that.

I tested the Safari and Opera Mini browser on my iPhone 4.0. The screenshots reveal a 14/160 score for Opera Mini and 134/160 for Mobile Safari in the tests I ran on my device.
