Sputnik

March 23, 2010

Today, I found Google’s “Sputnik” JavaScript conformance test.

We have always had ACID3 to test HTML/CSS/SVG conformance, and while it uses JavaScript, it doesn’t test it.

SunSpider tests JavaScript speed, but doesn’t care about conformance.

Today I found Sputnik by Google, which measures JavaScript conformance. Interestingly, Chrome is no longer the top on this test.

Internet Explorer 9

March 18, 2010

A developer preview for IE9 is finally out, scoring 55 on the ACID3 test. It’s the engine only, no UI changes, and plenty of missing UI (for example the back button). No security features either.

You can get it here.
