Microsoft is still boasting of the performance offered by your new browser Edge. With the engine Chromium in their roots, the web browser from Microsoft is conquering every time more users, and doing to forget the bittersweet taste of the old Edge to the time that finally assumes a replacement of guarantees for Internet Explorer.

Sample of the good work of Microsoft with their new development is the test that has overtaken the Edge-based on Chromium. Different tests designed to check the degree of accessibility it offers and where the new Edge has achieved a 100% on the test of accessibility HTML5… but beware, you have to see the study with a magnifying glass.

Do some figures with cat enclosed?

Accessible

It was verified that the level of accessibility support every browser in a test in which participated almost all browsers on the market. In the absence of any in particular, as can be Brave, have been tested with Chrome, Firefox, the above-mentioned Edge, Safari, and the old Internet Explorer.

Have been subjected to various tests whose final results you can see here and in which it seeks to know what new features of HTML5 are supported with the main browsers.

Includes a bank of tests to check whether they are accessible with the keypad or for example, if they support features related to accessibility so that a user that requires a type of special assistance can use the browser normally without the developers having to add other additional solutions.

Tests in which Edge gets a full 100% passed, a figure higher than the 92% obtained by Chrome, the 89% that manages Firefox, and 56% of Internet Explorer 11. Only Safari in macOS High Sierra is about to Edge with a 98% success.

At first sight it is a success, but if we look, there is no equity in the comparative. Have faced a new version and “old” and as well as Edge looks for the version 80 in the tests, Chrome the version used 62 now when you are going for the 80 as well as Firefox, which currently looks like the version 75.0 (64-bit), has been seen as evidence for the 58.0b9. In the case of Safari have been tested 11.0.3 on mac os High Sierra and now you are using the version 13.1 (15609.1.20.111.8) on macOS Catalina.

Good figures obtained by the Microsoft Edge, no doubt, but such a study would have to do it in equal conditions for all the participants.
