I can imagine us keeping a list of interesting edge cases, but there is no way to keep an accurate list of browsers.

The place for that might be Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_web_browsers, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mobile_browser) and then we could link to those pages?

We could either refer to the MATF and Wikipedia pages, or import their content into our own. The latter allows us to make our own notes, but we'd have to make an effort to track any new items they add. Or we could refer to them and only duplicate entries for which we want to add our own comments.

If we maintain our own page, should it be on the Wiki or on GitHub? If the latter, should it be a new Repository under Jeanne's account?

Note that there are lists of mobile browsers on the MATF Wiki here:

Cheers,

This is a great idea, IMO!  We will need this in a few months anyway.

are listed on Wikipedia
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_web_browsers), but most of the
recent ones like these, Mercury, Aviator, Escudo, and others we've
discussed are not.

It might be good to have them listed in a table with (at minimum)
columns for organization, platform(s), rendering engine, URL, email
address, and comments. One could then sort or filter the table using
GitHub's tools or a browser extension such as TableTools2, copy and
paste it into a spreadsheet, etc.

These new browsers were mentioned in the Mobile Accessibility Task
Force call today, and I thought some of the group would be interested
in checking them out.  The are both for Windows Phone:

Surfy (which has some voicing features)
