How Well Your Browser Supports HTML5 (test it now)

There are many tests (for example, Acid3 tests) available for browsers to check its performance, compatibility and security, but deciding which browser is the best can get a little dicey, as each one has its own ins and outs. Here is a new test, which helps you understand how well your browser supports the new web standard HTML5.
At, you can test your browser and know how your browser scores out of a possible 450 points. Even though the HTML5 specification isn't finalized yet, all major browser developers are making sure their browser is ready for the future.

At my end, the test ends in a close finish (except IE9), with Google Chrome (ver.13) slightly ahead of Opera (V.12.0).

Chrome got 332 points out of 450, while Opera scored 301 points. Firefox (v.5.0) achieved 272 points and Internet Explorer (v.9) got 141 points.

Find out which parts of HTML5 are already supported by your browser today and compare the results with other browsers.
