Mozilla Finishes First in ADC Mac Browser JavaScript Tests

Sunday February 23rd, 2003

Frank D writes: "Apple Developer Connection has posted the results of JavaScript tests among the six major browsers for the Mac (Safari, Mozilla, Internet Explorer, iCab, Opera, and Omniweb). The tests conclude that Mozilla has the best overall script handling, while Safari comes in second (and OmniWeb in last place)." Mozilla scored 'perfect support' in all tests except one involving moving a DHTML layer, where it had minor problems. Mozilla was the only browser able to successfully import an XML document and display its data within a HTML page.

It looks like their server's sending the wrong mime type. The apple.xml file that's being imported is identified as text/plain instead of text/xml.

If you save both import.html and apple.xml and then try the test locally it will pass since it's now loaded as text/xml. At least it did for me using "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20021130".
