Web browser standards support

Web browser standards support contains several comprehensive charts of web standards (HTML, CSS, DOM, and others) support in Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Opera. No Safari though.

  1. That’s cos, what with Dave Hyatt making short work of the Acid2 test, Safari would just score full points everywhere!

    No-one likes a show-off :)

    Hehe. Safari is good, but not that good. Yet :-)

  3. The chart seems not altogether correct, to me. It says that Opera 8 has full support for percentages in CSS 2.1, but it has some serious bugs when using percentage dimensions for absolutely positioned boxes (it bases the percentage on the dimensions of the parent block, not the containing block).

    It also claims that IE6 has full support for the :focus pseudo-class, which is bollocks. There may be other errors as well, I didn’t look all that closely.

    Ouch. I didn’t look very closely at the charts before posting this. Maybe I should have.

  5. Hi, sorry about those errors. They are fixed now. If you find more problems, please let me know. I didn’t personally test all of the information in the CSS and Miscellaneous tables, although I’ll try to get around to a thorough test sometime in the future.

    Also, if anyone is interested in collecting information for Safari, visit my message boards at http://nanobox.chipx86.com/forums/.
