The Browser Wars are in full swing with the new standards of HTML5 and CSS3 making their way into use. Some of the fiercest competitors are lingering old versions of the browsers. If you’re wanting to use a cool new feature, this site can help you understand which browsers will support it. The site currently lists compatibility for Firefox 3.5 and Safari 4 on Mac and these versions for Windows:
- Firefox 2, 3, 3.5, 3.6
- Safari 4
- Chrome 2
- Internet Explorer 6, 7, 8
- Opera 10
The site includes many subcategories for HTML5 Embedded Content, Web Applications, CSS3 Properties, HTML5 Forms 2.0, and CSS3 Selectors. The table is updated each Friday and you can find it here at the Web Designers’ Browser Support Checklist.
The same site has another related product that might be of interest. The Client Reporting tool works in 3 steps. You create an account and it generates a link. You send that link to people that will be using your website. You then get a detailed report about their browser, operating system, and other details that will help you design a fully-featured and fully-compatible website.
