The new and completely redesigned BB10 browser built from the ground up using HTML 5 technology, has met the Ringmark r1 benchmakrk, ensuring that the browser is capable of running apps with a greater range of features. With this milestone met, developers can rest assured that their 2D games, music and camera apps built with HTML 5 will work without a hitch.
But what is ringmark anyway? The Inside BlackBerry Dev Blog explains:
Ringmark is an HTML5 test suite developed by Facebook and delivered to the Open Source community. It identifies a much needed standard to ensure consistency and a basic level of functionality for HTML5 app developers. In fact, Facebook says, “One of Ringmark’s primary goals is to prove that web features work for mobile web developers.” This is a great benefit to web developers and we wanted to showcase our support for this kind of standardization initiative.
