This website rates HTML5 support of various browsers - http://html5test.com/
When you open the site in a browser, it detects that browser & assigns a score based on how well that browser supports the upcoming HTML5 standard and related specifications. It also shows the specific features that are supported.
The score is calculated by testing for the many new features of HTML5.
It does not try to test all of the new features offered by HTML5, nor does it try to test the functionality of each feature it does detect.
The latest versions of Chrome & Safari score better than current versions of Firefox & IE. You can track IE9's support of HTML5 here - http://samples.msdn....stcenter/#html5
