Best browser for playing HTML5 games!

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Sat Feb 11, 2012 2:41 pm

Hey everybody, I have found a browser with wich one you can play HTML5 games without performance laggs, loss of control (I had this on Google Chrome when using WASD movement), problems when right-clciking (Opera...) and all this other annoying problems like when you can't play offline without C2.

It's called "Aurora" and it's some kind of Firefox "alpha". You can find it by searching "Firefox Beta" in Google.

Here's a link (it's german because I couldn't change this): http://www.mozilla.org/de/firefox/channel/

No, I don't. But it's really awesome because I don't have any problems with my games anymore :)

The input bug you are talking about is probably this one.
As you can read by the end of the topic, r79 should have gotten rid of this bug, and chrome 18 too apparently.

Aurora is indeed a future version of FireFox actually in beta test.
If you're interested in new versions of firefox check out Ashley's post about the testing of the gamepad API

Just tested it. And yeah the performance is much better then version 10.0.
Used this : http://html5-benchmark.com/ just for convenience. I think it uses canvas not webgl. On version 10.0 it struggled with frame times reaching more than 35ms. Unacceptable, more or less 20fps. On Aurora it ran at full 60fps and no more than 5ms of frame time. Awesome. It appears it is passing Chrome as i ran some other tests and it did much better than Chrome in all cases with less apparent GC calls (abrupt performance drops). In other tests it failled hard. :) Like Three.JS demos.Kiyoshi2012-02-11 16:53:15

Just to say, Aurora *is* Firefox :)
In fact, you have Firefox, current trunk (for example, at February the 11th, its the 10), beta is the build n+1, Aurora is always the build n+2, and Nightly is the build n+3. When you use Aurora, you are always going to use a browser one version ahead than stock, and Nightly two version ahead. However those builds have lots of experimental stuff added, and can be unstable, or offer functionnalities that are very fast, and for no reason very slow on another website/game...

I think it's clear that Aurora is Firefox, anyone thought otherwise ? :)
