If you ever wondered how you browser might fare when you do a HTML5 test then this is just for you! HTML5 is the next generation technology that will take the Internet to new heights.
One can read a lot of articles by just searching on the Internet about HTML5, it’s features and also the possibility of when it will be implemented. Until then we just need to wait for it to happen and also play some cool HTML5 games if you ever wanted to try some new type of gaming platform.
This post is for the enthusiasts who been tracking the progress of HTML5 and also want to test out their browser capability for the next big thing.
HTML5Test.com is a website that lets you test your Internet browser for its ability to handle HTML5 based websites, games, videos etc.
Here is a cool website which has a video in it the formats of flash and HTML5. Check it out and try to play on your browser and see it for yourself: http://videojs.com/
If you are running a browser like Google Chrome or something similar then you would have been able to see the video without any problems. I played it in all the 3 browsers that is installed on my computer: Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Microsoft Internet Explorer. I found that Firefox and Chrome played the HTML5 video smoothly and it lagged a bit on IE9.
Perform a HTML5 test on your browser now: http://HTML5Test.com
Anyways it might just be my Internet connection or maybe the IE browser is not meant to handle the new format.
Now coming back to the topic, HTML5Test.com can test your Internet browser and also show the score on how well your browser fares on the new HTML version.
I tried the HTML5 test on all three browsers on my computer and got the following results:
Google Chrome – 437 points + 13 Bonus points
Firefox – 346 points + 9 Bonus points
Internet Explorer 9 – 138 points + 5 Bonus points
As you can clearly see that Google Chrome is the winner among the test, to be frank this is not a big deal if you are using some other browser which has scored less. Since the HTML5 technology itself is far from being deployed on the Internet and by then am sure the rest of the browsers will catch up to make sure it is compatible with it.
I looked at the website further to get information that as of now the current version of the Chrome is the ebst browser to handle HTML5 and it is followed by the likes of Maxthon 3.4.1, Opera 12.00, Safari 6.0, Firefox 14 and then finally IE9. It also shows that IE10 which is still in development scores a good 319 points, which is good because we’d like better stuff from Microsoft.
I have always been a great fan of Firefox until Google Chrome came into existence. And now I have made Chrome as the default browser and Firefox is secondary.
Anyways, go ahead and give it a shot and test your browser for HTML5 compatibility and do tell us your opinion about it.
