    I was just at the NYC PlayBook training event. (Amp it up series).. I want to start off by saying I was very impressed with PlayBook. Everything was so snappy and responsive. It was still using an older build of the OS and there was an update available on almost all the devices. (I did not check what version of the OS it was running). I checked the HTML5Test.com site using browser and I was very impressed with the results...

    The PlayBook Beta Build Results scored 258 points!! with 9 bonus points! ( see attached image)

    To put that into prospective:

    iPAD/iOS 4.3 = 206
    Firefox 4 = 255
    IE 9 = 133

    Here are the results from HTML5test.com for other mobile devices.

    Mobile browsers

    Phones and tablets
    Opera Mini 6 35 -
    Apple iPhone and iPod iOS 3.1 132 7
    Apple iPad iOS 3.2 134 7
    Maemo 1.7.4 170 1
    Android 2.2 182 0
    Android 2.3 182 1
    Apple iPhone and iPod iOS 4.0 195 7
    Apple iPhone and iPod iOS 4.1 195 7
    Apple iPhone, iPod and iPad iOS 4.2 206 7
    Apple iPhone, iPod and iPad iOS 4.3 206 7
    Blackberry 6 233 1
    Opera Mobile 11 234 8

    Oh yea and for that ACID 3 test, the PlayBook browser received a 100/100 with no artifacts on the screen. (see attached img) (the yellow block looks like its missing a border on the left but when you zoom in you can see the border).

    It allows us webdevs to create kick *** apps through the WebWorks SDK.
    The more features the browser supports (and supports CORRECTLY) the more we can do on this platform

    Very true, but I think it's fair to say that once HTML5 coding becomes more popular and all the instruction sets become more widely used and popular in pages on the web, more browsers (mobile and non) will get support for them. It only stands to reason....

    I read and re-read this 3 times now and I don't really understand what you're trying to say here.

    From a PlayBook point of view it doesn't matter what other browsers support or don't support. The more features supported by the PlayBook, the better PlayBook apps built on WebWorks can be.

    LOL that Acid3 test is bogus without displaying the full url. I run it on Firefox and get 97/100, click the "reference" link and it displays 100/100. Show the full URL for that 100/100 and then we can see for sure.

    The title of the page would have said "The Acid3 Test (Reference Rendering)". That screenshot clearly says "The Acid Test".

    BOOM!
