Panasonic Viera Smart TV browser
|Screen resolution||1920 × 1080|
|Viewport size||1256 × 630|
|Acid3||100/100, with bugs|
Browser runs on WebKit (looks like a modified version of Chrome). It’s pretty slow, especially when dealing with animations.
The browser is controlled with a remote control (you can optionally plug in keyboard and mouse). The cursor is controlled with directional keys on the remote. Colored keys are contextual. When viewing sites, they control zooming and switching between “moving” and “dragging” cursor modes. Zooming doesn’t affect the viewport size.
:active states work fine, but
:active state is triggered after a short delay.
Scrolling is done by moving the cursor to the edge of the screen. Internal overflowed blocks can be scrolled by pressing arrow buttons on the scrollbar, which can be tricky. Scrollbars are constantly visible.
Acid3 test is passed with bugs:
Feature tests are done using Modernizr. Full table of my tests on google docs.
The only default fonts available are sans-serif and monospace. Fantasy, cursive and serif fall back to sans-serif. External fonts are supported without noticible problems.
Browser’s support for new input types is pretty weak:
There’s no datepicker. Onscreen keyboard doesn’t apadt to input types. Validation works for
url input types,
pattern attributes also work fine.
Almost fully-featured Chrome in terms of rendering, although pretty slow and with fiddly UI.
