Firefox beats Chrome in MathML test

Firefox Vs. Chrome

Google Chrome for a long time is king of web browsers. It's faster in terms of JavaScript performance than any other browser on the market. Chrome browser always scored highest in HTML5  test. The HTML5 test score is an indication of how well your browser supports the upcoming HTML5 standard and related specifications.

But for the past years, Mozilla update Firefox in such a manner that it comes out to challenge Chrome. But still Firefox not beating Chrome in HTML5 test. In some regard, Mozilla passed by Chrome and there are no signs that Mozilla will slow down anytime soon.

A test has been created to test a browser's MathML support.  MathML, the Mathematical Markup Language, Its main objective  is to provide mathematicians with the means to use math expressions on the Internet.

The test is, the elements are drawn on the screen and a smiley face is displayed if the web browser supports all the web technologies used to draw it.

 The first of the major web browsers to do is the latest Nightly version of the Firefox web browser. Other browsers display all kinds of error messages at the time of writing, below is Google Chrome Canary's rendering of the page:

The possible reason of why chrome fails is that  the company removed features that it did not plan on supporting the short term from the browser after they have forked WebKit and decided to work on Blink.
