These results encompass what weíve based Level 0, 1, and 2 (and Ringmark Ring 0, 1, and 2) on, primarily.

Ie, 2D games, audio/video apps, and camera apps have nearly always dominated.  Therefore, thatís the basis for Level 1.
While itís not my intention to reignite the discussion for Level 0, Iíve gone a step further and also included our research as to whatís currently supported in iOS Safari and the Android Browser.  This includes nearly 200 features.  We hope that this data will give developers a very granular picture of whatís supported on mobile today, as well as help sites like and

Feedback is always welcome.
