Sites to help test HTML5 support

Different vendors support HTML5 specification in different ways, or may not support certain parts of the specification at all.

1. HTML5 Test http://html5test.com/

The HTML5 Test website will allow you to see how well a specific version or brand of browser implements the whole of the HTML5 specification. This is very useful when you are trying to decide what kind of browser or device support matrix your application will provide.

2. Can I Use http://caniuse.com/
