"The score is calculated by testing for the many new features
of HTML5. Each feature is worth one or more points. Apart from
the main HTML5 specification and other specifications created
the W3C HTML Working Group, ...etc.
The test also awards bonus points for supporting audio and

Browser & version Browser Score Bonus Points
Firefox Version 22.0 306 13
IE 10 10.0.9200.16635 267 6
Safari 5.1.7(7534.57.2) 215 2
Google Chrome Ver. 28.0.500.95 m 328 13
