Good, the longer I can stick with plugins the better. Long live flash and silverlight.

And @darkmagic14n that functionality was added some time ago to the aurora release channel. Certainly the last time I looked it couldn't be disabled. 12.02a 2012-02-09 is the latest aurora channel release that doesn't have it.

Ummm.. found the source code and read the creators comments, but I'm not tech savvy enough to understand what HTML5 is all about. I only found the code cuz I use firefox. (Right click, view element, stumbled across it on accident.)

@MacGuffin:

for what its worth, I just opened a new tab in Nightly 14 and it came up with the same 9 panel screen of most often viewed sites. I'm about to inspect the preferences to see if that can be changed, otherwise it looks like FF is following Chrome.

338 +9 out of 500 for Opera 11.62, BTW. Apparently Opera 12.0 scores a 380 +9 (it adds WebGL 3D context and drag-and-drop events and attributes), but it's only out for mobile devices so far.

Does it still do that thing where it changes your Home Page every so often, so that it presents a selection of your recent/most often -visited websites instead of the page you had actually set?


I'm using chrome18 on 10.6 (snow leopard) and you have the choice of most recent pages or installed apps, haven't tried to set a homepage but assume google.com is my default home (this is not my primary browser).

345+9 for FF11 (and nightly 14)
265+7 for Safari5 on snow leopard

Just for reference:
318/500 plus 9 for Safari 5.0.6 on Mac OS X 10.5.8
(This is not the latest OS X version...)

400/500 +13 bonus points for Chrome 18...Refuse to open IE ever


PS: Your Chrome result is a little better news (80% features would work instead of 75%!). I've not tried using Chrome personally since the first version, though. Does it still do that thing where it changes your Home Page every so often, so that it presents a selection of your recent/most often -visited websites instead of the page you had actually set? I couldn't help thinking what an unbelievably bad feature that was when I first saw it. I could imagine people going to do a big browser-based presentation in front of clients, only to find their bondage fetish, research into STDs and religious beliefs plastered all over the screen instead of the google.com they were expecting!

I agree with your assessment of IE, but whilst 28% of people still use it (down from 38% in June last year), you've got to cater to that demographic as a developer.

MacGuffin, I got 345/500 + 9 bonus points for Firefox 12.0 and 400/500 +13 bonus points for Chrome 18. Idk if that's good o.o; Refuse to open IE ever so not going to test IE.


Well, it means that if you used a feature of HTML5, you've got a 75% chance of that feature working for visitors to your site that use the same browser as you. Would you get in a car that only made it to 3/4 of the destinations you drove it to?

MacGuffin - Stuff like that happens all the time for marketing / advertising. Like 4G.

Go on, see how many features of the present definition of HTML5 the browser you're currently using actually supports, knock yourself out. And that's probably not even the basic common denominator you're going to have to work to if you're building a public-facing web app - try it with IE9 (the basic common denominator web developers work to today) and see what results you get.

I've lost count of the amount of times I've heard "we should use HTML5" from non-technical people who think they know technology in relation to web development when Flash, Silverlight or even any popular JavaScript library would be better options for now.

Check the source code... if you don't know how to do that. You probably haven't clicked the link.
