Chapter 45: HTML5 > HTML5 and Alternative Android Browsers

HTML5 and Alternative Android Browsers

While the built-in Android browser will be the choice of many Android users, there are other browsers available. Here is how some of the better-known alternatives stand in terms of HTML5 support:

  • Firefox Mobile: Still in beta form after quite some time, supports offline caching and local storage. However, it is unable to run the Checklist sample correctly at this time.
  • Opera Mobile: A steadily improving offering, recently adding features like haptic feedback support. Does not support local storage, rendering Checklist moot. It also does not support offline caching at this time.
  • Dolphin Browser HD 4.0: Supports offline caching and local storage. While there are slight rendering problems—perhaps CSS-related—in Checklist, the application otherwise runs fine, even without an Internet connection.
