HTML5 And CSS3 Browser Compatibility Chart

FindMeByIP.com is sharing beautiful browser compatibility charts for HTML5 and CSS3 properties which we are seeing more and more everyday.

The charts include:

  • CSS3 properties
  • CSS3 selectors
  • HTML5 web applications (local storage, geolocation, etc.)
  • HTML5 embedded content (canvas, audio, etc.)
  • HTML5 form inputs, attributes and audio/video codecs

and contain data for the popular browsers with their widely used versions.

P.S. You may also want to checkout FindMeByIP.com homepage which offers a free service to help you collect the browser capabilities of a remote user (like clients) for better responding to any browser-related cases/questions.

CSS3 - HTML5 Browser Compatibility Chart

  • Wow – IE’s stats are just SAD!

    chart tool becoming more popular and they have well designed web site there 🙂

  • Awsome chart, this will come in handy.

    Awesome chart. IE is just retarded !

  • Rc

    It may seem retarded last I heard many of the CSS3 specs till aren’t in stone as it were. IE is likely waiting for the standards to concretize before making a move though I admire the others for taking initiative it makes little sense when the standards can change and leave you ith an improperly implemented feature.

    Also I think microsoft knows that as long as IE remains a major player we web designers are faced with two choices.

    A.) Dual mode our sites so that we can achieve similar effects with elaborate work arounds specifically for IE. TIme consuming work arounds.

    B.) Limit Ourselves to the Features that it supports. Which for a web designer makes more sense. and is a tad safer to boot.

    Really, IE EIGHT doesn’t support Border-Radius? Still??!!
    I wish IE didn’t exist and we didn’t have to bother about it all!

  • anon

    @Rc, you’re right about IE. But IE is only at 60% market share BECAUSE it is bundled with Windows. Firefox, with no such luck has 23% share. So if innovation and progress is to work with browsers, ideally IE should not be bundled with Windows. Then IE’s slacking off will ensure it is finished. No excuse for not implementing the standard, even if it can change. Whats the $60+ billion annual revenue doing if it can’t be put into the “web”! Wake up M$, or begone! 🙂

    @anon – Yeah, in Europe they tried selling windows systems without IE (after an anti-trust lawsuit), and people were pissed… How can you even go online to download a browser if you don’t have a browser?

    The real answer is that windows setup should ask you what browser you want during the initial setup, or should come with several installed.

    And really, why is it that my windows machine (even my old one at work, running XP SP3) is always running updates, but somehow, they don’t include IE in those updates? That’s my big beef. That they’re 3 years behind sucks, but that IE6 is still out there on people’s computers (because they don’t know to manually upgrade it) is insane.

    The stats on IE are complete wrong. IE9 supports gradients; form attributes; form inputs. You need to do your testing again.
    Also for those complaining about the older versions of IE…It isn’t a fair comparison. When those IE7 was released css3 and html5 were in the very very beginning stages of even being discussed. For a fair comparison you need to compare IE7 to FF2.

    Simply put, it doesn’t matter what IE supports. We all know that it still sucks, and even today we have to use workarounds for even the newest features that it still doesn’t support. That browsers has singlehandedly made the design process for websites a major headache for all, especially if you want backwards compatibility. Luckily some frameworks have stepped in, but the reason they stepped in was because of that necessity.
    So, people complaining about how IE is given unfair results or even bias, who cares? It doesn’t change the fact that of all browsers out there, the web design process has to heavily cater towards IE, due to the fact that it sucks shit.

  • heheheh IE is really retarded
    Stopped using it 5 years ago

    Maybe they should just quit or shut it down…

    @dunkelfuerst

    Great! just what i was looking for.

    cheers

    Internet Explorer needs to disappear. As a Web designer, it’s my worst nightmare.

  • PathForward

    I really like the charts – but where are the comparisons for the previous versions of Firefox, Chrome, Safari and Opera? They are there for IE 6,7,8 which spans a period of 13 years (1999). I don’t see anything equivalent for those other browsers. Not really a fair comparison for those who want to bag on IE.

    Unfortunately I have clients who are on Firefox 1.1 as well as other older browsers. I agree that it would make life easier if everyone was on the latest browser – but the reality is that they are not, which is why it becomes very difficult to tell my clients that HTML5 is a good solution right now. Argghhhh……

    I haven’t searched yet, but I think what would be interesting to see is a cutting edge website that pushes the boundaries of say I.E. 8, which is what seems to be the most used version at this time according to my Analytics results, with all examples of what can be done with HTML5 and CSS3 as a single solution and not have to develop any workarounds.

  • As a newbie designer IE is a barrier for me. I spend more time to make my website show properly in IE than designing it. I sure need a solution.

  • Glen

    Two ideas for designers and developers:

    1) use javascript that prompts users to download a standards-compliant browser…

    2) use a history pop-up or page to detail Microsuck’s perfidy: a) they attempted to own the wsywig editor market by buying Frontpage, b) they deliberately broke their browser (I.E.) so it would display Frontpage’s buggy code because they assumed they were the only game in town (they thought then).

    Seems to me that if thousands of well-visited web sites directed users to use other browsers the migration away from I.E. could be accelerated.

  • I notice a lot of dissing IE… most of which is deserved. They did get rid of another browser, Netscape, which was the biggest game in town at the time, so they weren’t the only browser. Also, I find it interesting that some of the advances such as the HTTP Request to get AJAX to work came from IE 5.5 and is now part of the W3c standard and is supported by all 5 of the major browsers, indicating that they did contribute. Also, I can write pages that look great in Fire Fox, but break horribly in Chrome, but it always seems easier to fix.

  • barbod

    what are they doing in Microsoft???

    Hello… for all you hating on the browser babylon, this is why we all moved to Flex five years ago… Apple can kiss my ass – Flash content is still the best way to design once and have a uniform experience across all browsers and operating systems. Try that with HTML5!

  • KHS

    The comparison is sadly skewed, because you did not include IE9, which was already release at the time of writing this review, just so that you can show how bad IE is.

    IE9, and now 10, are extremely good.
