Default Checking browser CSS3 compatibility

This simple CSS3 test will report whether the browser being used is compatible with most CSS selectors, including new ones. Selectors that require user actions are not included.

Firefox 3.5.3, Safari 4.0.3, and Opera 10.0 got perfect scores.

I checked two versions of Camino, 1.6.9 and 1.6.10. Both had the same results: 26 of 43 selectors passed; 10 buggy; 7 unsupported.

It would be interesting to see how older versions of Firefox and Safari fared, and how other browsers do (MS Explorer 7 and 8, especially).

For IE7, it's "From the 43 selectors 13 have passed, 4 are buggy and 26 are unsupported (Passed 330 out of 578 tests)". I don't have the PC with IE8 on it plugged in now.

Thanks. About what I would have expected with IE7. I think IE8 is supposed to be better.

IE8:
From the 43 selectors 22 have passed, 1 are buggy and 20 are unsupported (Passed 349 out of 578 tests)


Still some way to go before we can use CSS3 without browser sniffing...

Firefox 3.0.14
From the 43 selectors 36 have passed, 0 are buggy and 7 are unsupported (Passed 373 out of 578 tests)

That's an older Firefox and already more compliant than IE8.

Guess so.

Thanks.

IE 6 on my older computer:

From the 43 selectors 10 have passed, 1 are buggy and 32 are unsupported (Passed 276 out of 578 tests)

Isn't that better than the newer versions?

Not quite (IE8 was 22, 1, 20, passing 349 of 578 tests).

Still, MSIE is sort of consistent.

What percentage of web travelers do these three account for? 25%, maybe?
