Html – Does Internet Explorer 8 support HTML 5


Is there any HTML5 support in IE8? Is it on the IE8 roadmap?

Best Solution

IE8 beta 2 supports two APIs from HTML5: cross-document messaging and non-SQL storage.

IE8 beta 2 doesn’t implement the HTML5 parsing algorithm or the new elements (no <canvas> or <video> support).

There are also bug fixes that align IE8 better with HTML5.
