Mobile Web Test Suites Working Group

The Mobile Web Test Suites Working Group is now closed. The group operated from early 2007 until February 2010.

The mission of the MWI Test Suites Working Group was to help create a strong foundation for the mobile Web through the development of a set of test suites targeted at browsers.

These test suites can help assess which technologies and which features of a given technologies are supported in existing browsers on mobile devices.

Test suites

We have integrated some of the test suites above in our Mobile Test Harness: you can help improve the knowledge about your browser by going through these test suites in this tool!


Mobile Test Harness
The Mobile Test Harness is a framework that can host Web-based test suites, allowing for a simple navigation from one test cases to the other, while recording results submitted by the user; the code of the harness is available as an open-source project
