4 Useful HTML5 Browser Support Overviews

HTML5 gives us many advantages. You can use the basic HTML5 elements like header, nav and footer in all browser at the moment. But there are more cool things like canvas, SVG or client side JavaScript databases.

The English version of Wikipedia contains a comparison by layout engine—the render engines for each browser. The table shows Trident, Gecko, WebKit and Presto, the engines of Internet Explorer (MSIE), Firefox/Mozilla, Safari/Chrome and Opera. They are grouped by Web Forms 2.0 and Web Applications 1.0 (elements, attributes, …).
