A better browser

{slide=Google Chrome 17}

gchromelogo When Google Chrome came on the scene it changed web browsing with its seemingly amazing ability to get web pages at lightning speed and also support a host of different web techs. We put this ontop because it is where it should be. Chrome is fast, slick, stylish and above all almost completely supports HTML 5, well in comparison to its rivals its way ahead of the game. It scored:


  • 374/475 and 13 bonus points – For HTML5
  • 55% – For CSS3.

{slide=Mozilla FireFox 11}

firefoxsmall Firefox has really grown from a small fox to a big web giant. Really! In a market where Internet explorer still remains the dominant force, Firefox browser changed the way the web was viewed and its robust design and use of the machines capabilities to run services make it both good and potentially evil. Especially when you begin running lots of tabs. Anyway to business. 


Firefox scored:

  • 335/475 and 9 bonus points out of a possible 15 – For HTML5
  • It faired slightly worse compared to Chrome when it came to CSS3 though with a score of 53% – For CSS3



{slide=Internet Explorer 9}

ie9Microsoft have really been hurt in the browser war. There was a time when it was all about Microsoft but as ordinary humans began developing and realised they sometimes needed to make a CSS twice because of IE seemingly stubborn compatability issues, and as new browsers emerged and older ones became wiser IE is disliked. To put it lightly. But has things changed?


  • IE scored 141 and 5 bonus points – For HTML5
  • It also scored 33% – For CSS3.
I guess the answer is no and we still need to wait for sometime for Microsoft to get their acts together. It does have some good points to it though, like using your graphics card to make the graphics on the web page appear sharper.

{slide=Opera 11.62}

operaOpera, well not much to say really, Opera is not featured much in the talks although the browser is packed to the hilt with features if you get addicted to you may not be able to live without. Like the ability to turn your computer to a website from the browser. Damn, that browser got game. Does it have HTML5 or CSS3 game though?


  • It scored 329 with 9 bonus points – For HTML5
  • 50% of all CSS3 features are supported by Opera – For CSS3.
Well, perhaps it might have game, maybe. It definitely is better than IE9. At least the company can take heart in learning that I enjoy using their browsers on my mobile device. It just seems more functional.

{slide=Apple Safari 5.15}

 safari What does Apple have going for them. Everything it seems. They are even worth more money than Microsoft that is if anybody in their right mind will pull out the funds to buy the company outright. But really, Apple has it going for them, they make great MP3 players, beautiful laptops, functional operating systems(these have come a long way) and even a web browser that makes IE look like a 3 year old in his spare time thought it up. Safari, is great. It has really good functionality and is simple to use. What’s more, it does not take as much resources as some browsers. What about HTML5? Let’s find out:


  • 301 and 9 bonus points – Fot HTML5
  • 52% – For CSS3
Erm, I don’t know about you but I think Apple might be reaching their browsing limits excuse the pun. Yet, take a look at their website and its is packed full with these very technologies we are talking about. In fact, Apple website is simply inspirational and a work of art like many of their products. If you like to read definitely get this because it has a feature that somehow deletes all the graphics from a page and allows you to concentrate on the text from an article. Simple.

{slide=Maxthon 3.36}

maxthon Until the time of writing this article, I had never heard of Maxthon. Well I do now and I really am going to put it under the knife to see how it fairs. It might even be my new browser. But before any statistic, no wait, see for yourself!


  • 382 and 15/15 bonus points – For HTML5
  • 55% – For CSS3
Okay as I was saying, It wins outright. A browser I have never heard of thrumps the likes of Google and Firefox to the pole position for HTML 5 Support. We say a job well done to the developers.
