HTML 5 TEST
HTML 5 Test gives an indication of well your browser supports the upcoming HTML5 standard and related specification. The HTML 5 Test score is calculated by testing for the many new features of HTML5. Each feature is worth one or more points. Apart from the main HTML5 specification and other specifications created the W3C HTML Working Group, this test also awards points for supporting related drafts and specifications.
The HTML 5 test is updated whenever the specification is updated. In case some features are removed, they get deleted from the test also and newer tests are created. The maximum score that a browser can score is 555.
The rest results are displayed as a gradually increasing counter that is represented by colored rectangles. Each rectangle indicated completion of a particular test. Finally, when all tests are performed, the graph shows 100/100 as the results; of course if everything is fine.
Browsermark 2.1 tests browser’s conformance in which it tells how well the browser did on CSS3 and in HTML5 support tests. It tests other factors such as screen resizing ability, page loading ability, ability to support modern website development techniques and overall performance of the browser.
The performance of browsers is likely to vary across different benchmark test tools, as it is not only dependent on the operating system, but also on the hardware plugins.
