After a sugar coated promo from the Microsoft, it’s time to put their claims into a test and find out, how good or bad Internet Explorer 10 really is when it comes to gaming and HTML5 performance.
Thankfully, a game developer from Scirra.com did a bunch of tests and let me tell you, the results are pretty ugly. Why? Mostdly due to no WebGL support.
Real Life Scenarios
A lack of shader effects due to no WebGL
If scaled, retro style games will appear blurry
Not only that but as explained in the blog post, IE10 “does not support the free Vorbis audio codec, either in Ogg or a WebM container”, which might annoy some of the evangelists.
In conclusion, Internet Explorer 10 seems to be falling behind and while it’s still capable of some cool games (thanks to GPU acceleration), there is no denying that other web browsers crush it when it comes to benchmarks like that.
