Maxthon Dominates The HTML5Test, Again

By | May 18, 2012

Maxthon Dominates HTML5Test, AgainAs previously reported, Maxthon 3 has been quite good at supporting the upcoming HTML5 standards. Now, after tasting the sweet fruits of victory, Maxthon developers continue to march forward with a new release.

So what’s new?

The beta build of Maxthon 3.3.9 web browser improves the HTML5Test score by a total of 15 points, up from 437+13 to 452+13.

In addition to that, we were notified that while it only scores 13 bonus points, it’s a bug and will likely to be fixed in the future releases.

As Shane Bundy explained, “the reason why Maxthon only scores 13 bonus points is because of a bug that assumes Maxthon cannot support MP4 playback (which it can). This will be fixed in a later update.”

Maxthon Browser Changelog

New Features:
– Supported HTML5 Microdata
– Added “Internet Options” to proxy menu
– Added message prompt when exited Maxthon Browser
… and bug fixes

If you are installing the following build, be warned as it’s set itself as a default web browser, even as a dev build.

    does anyone know how many websites as a percentage use HTML 5 ?

  2. jayjam says:

    This seems impressive on the surface, but how are they doing it? By using a newer webkit version than Chrome and Safari?

    Are all the detected html5 features actually usable (and not just flagged as enabled without actually working)?

    • Mikah says:

      Webkit is responsible for 400 of those point’s leaving Maxthon 52 points .
      They are midgets standing on the shoulders of giants.

      • jayjam says:

        So how many of those points are valid points? That is, how many of those things actually work, and aren’t just reported as “supported” without actually working?
