Tizen 2 beats BlackBerry10 in HTML5 score =o
-- Thread's info written November 29th 2012 --
In a lot of video's the people giving demos about BlackBerry10 have stated its world leading HTML5 support. So today I went to html5test.com to check the current score on the latest dev alpha OS and saw BlackBerry10 is not leading anymore. "Tizen 2" scores 485 with 16 bonus points where blackBerry10 scores 484 with 11 bonus points. Altough its not a huge difference it's still too bad we can't (at the moment) "talk big" about it anymore hehehe.
So what's this "Tizen 2", and do you guys think this will motivate RIM even more to create a better BlackBerry10 browser to take back that leading spot?

there's no need to brag about having the highest score for html5. although it is being pushed it has yet to be a standard. alot of these web apps being built for this standard will make its way to many consumers. samsung will be using it with their consumer line of hardware and so will RIM. so as it picks up, standardization will soon be in the horizon.

And like many others have already said, that huge score may not translate as better functionality. RIM should somehow find a median between awesome functionality and a high HTML5 score.Children of tomorrow live in the tears that fall today

So just because (not yet released) product is qualified 2nd with 100 points in front of 2 currently most popular products we don't have a reason to brag? F that, we have full right to brag, don't be surprised if BB10 passes HTML5 test with 500 and Ring 2 test when it is finally released. It would make sense if RIM was aiming for this, it would just look great at the official launch

i think its a samsung mobile os....or maybe a browser.
Tizen is an operating system for multiple device categories including smartphones, tablets, in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) devices, smart TVs, and more. Tizen offers a consistent user experience that consumers can take from device to device. Tizen is open source and standards-based software. Its main components are the Linux kernel, the Enlightenment Foundation Libraries (EFL) and the WebKit runtime.
The Tizen project resides within the Linux Foundation and is governed by a Technical Steering Group (TSG). The TSG (Intel and Samsung) is the primary decision-making body, with a focus on platform development and delivery, along with the formation of working groups to support device verticals.
The Tizen Association has been formed to guide the industry role of Tizen, including gathering of requirements, identification and facilitation of service models, and overall industry marketing and education.
Tizen provides a flexible environment for application developers, based on jQuery and jQuery Mobile. The software development kit (SDK) allows developers to use HTML5 and related web technologies to write applications that run across multiple device segments.

Personally, I don't care if it has the top HTML5 score as long as it scores well and is faster than the competition. My Playbook scores better than my friend's iPad, but his pages load quicker and look just as good. Unless the pages look like crap, most people really just care about speed.

They can still twist the wording like Apple do. They could say "The browser that ships with BB10 has a higher HTML5 score than the browsers that ship with any other OS on the market today." Which would be true.

It would be interesting to see what would happen if Samsung introduced Tizen big time. Maybe even ditch Android for it. Would that deliver quite a blow to whole Android system? It seems like a lot of people don't really know about OS'es in general and stick to single brands. Would be switch when the next Galaxy S4 would launch with a completely polished Tizen instead of Android 4.x?

One thing I think people tend to forget about the BlackBerry browser is that RIM is giving back to the webkit community with it. Sure, they have high scores but so does everyone else who wants to implement RIM's contributions to the code. It's not like RIM has some super secret work being done under the hood, it's all there out in the open.

Compatibility is one thing to be proud of; but, you should be aware that statements like "BB10 is the fastest web browser" are probably misnomers if you are basing it off HTML5 scores. Neither should you have the expection of the BB10 browser to be the fastest browser in loading HTML5 pages when it finally debuts.

the playbooks browser is built off Adobe AIR, it can render alot but its also pretty RAM hungry and a bit laggy, if i do recall BB10s browser is built from HTML5 so it doesn't really need a third party app loader to run it like the current Playbook browser which needs AIR

(fully up to date Dev A comes in at 1503ms, whenever i get around to updating my Dev B it *should* perform even better than that)
