We love the beautiful web that is emerging, especially Microsoft with IE9 and IE10. We have seen tests and examples displaying what modern browsers can do with HTML5 and the benefits of hardware acceleration, now it's time to see all this on a mobile scale. Introducing the Mobile Test Drive.
The features of this testing environment are as follows:
- Audio Player (from MIX11)
- Border Radius
- DOM Local Storage
- Scalable Vector Graphics
- CSS3 Media Queries
- FishIE Tank
- Speed Reading (from MIX11)
- Animated Text
- HamsterDance Revolution
- Business Charts
- IE Logo
- Video Panorama
- Browser Control Themeing
More samples will be added to the mobile test through the upcoming months to Mango and beyond so keep an eye out for changes and additions. If you're a web developer you can see how your websites will look on Mobile IE9 by downloading the Windows Phone Developer tools. Pretty neat if I do say so myself.

I'd be really happy if Microsoft were to allow TRUE third party browsers that can use their own Mobile Rendering engines. I'm happy for the IE9 update. It's desperately needed IMO, but for me, being able to use Firefox would be amazing.
