Chrome 15: Most compatible HTML5 browser
There is one big mover in this iteration of the Fairer Platform’s HTML5 benchmark survey, but crowd hasn’t moved much. However, devices running Apple’s iOS 5 post an impressively consistent score.
The last time we looked at HTML5 compatibility benchmarks back in July, Chrome was on top. Google’s WebKit-based browser is still number one, but has increased its scored only a few percent since then.
• Chrome 15: 342 (330)
• Firefox 8: 314 (286)
• Safari 5.1.1: 308 (307)
• iOS 5.0.1: 296 (253)
— 4G iPod touch, 1G iPad, CDMA iPhone 4
• SeaMonkey 2.5: 287 (na)
• Opera 11.5.2: 268 (nc)

And, isn’t it interesting that iOS 5 devices score so well and consistently — the same point total for each of the three widgets tested. Pretty darned good for mobile, putting Opera and SeaMonkey to shame.
Whereas it’s good that iOS and Firefox have made double-digit advances since July, the other browsers tested have hardly moved.
