Try IE9 with HTML5 showcases from Microsoft, Mozilla, Google and Apple

Since IE9 final version is being released today (http://www.beautyoftheweb.com), here are some HTML5 showcases from different browser makers to test it out against:

Could even try some of Google’s Chrome specific demos in case they work with IE9 too: http://www.chromeexperiments.com/

 

IE9 RC (Release Candidate) wasn’t fully HTML5 compliant last time tested mind you, but neither the other browsers were as you can see at W3C tests:

IE9 is way better though than IE8: http://samples.msdn.microsoft.com/ietestcenter/

Can also see lots of HTML5 tests for browsers at: http://html5demos.com/

 

BTW, it is very interesting that IE9 also supports the WOFF format (Web Open Font Format). Typeface lovers can drool freely here: http://lostworldsfairs.com/

 

Here’s a relevant post with nice video of Mozilla’s showcase: http://techtimely.wordpress.com/2011/03/08/html5-showcase-demos/

 

So should we start drooling on future WebGL support in the browsers’ world too now?
