Let's start with some good news. The readonly attribute, which makes a form field read-only, is supported by all browsers, both mobile and desktop. Even IE9. Cool, huh?

The rest of the input story is worse. Much worse. Let's put it like this: Obigo WebKit, a browser nobody but me has ever heard of, outperforms iPhone and Android.

Initially my plan was to do a quick survey of the desktop browsers, followed by a more in-depth treatment of the mobile ones, not least because a mobile client expects automated tests for the input types. But then it turned out that the new types and attributes aren't well supported by the desktop browsers, either.

Only two browser vendors have approached this part of the HTML5 spec seriously: Opera and RIM. Both support most of the specification, and also display an understanding of the underlying point of the new input types.

Microsoft, Apple, Google, Samsung, Nokia, and Palm disappoint. As to Mozilla, it is nowhere near Opera and RIM, but what it supports it supports well. And Obigo gets number almost right, which is more than the others can say.
