Hi.

I was taking a look into the preview pages of the book in Amazon wishing to figure out which browsers the book is based on. But unfortunatelly this specific page (28) is missing...

Which browsers (with versions) the autors indicate to run HTML5 tests on?

Alexandre -
Are you asking about Head First HTML5 Programming? It's not clear from your message.

If you are, we recommend running the examples in the book on the most recent versions of each of the modern browsers (Chrome, Safari, Firefox, Opera and IE). We do indicate in the book where there may be specific issues with a browser, but most examples will work on most browsers assuming you're using recent versions. (Although I just found out that Firefox 8 broke web workers, where they were working in Firefox 7!). Anyway... we also recommend using Modernizr to test for HTML5 features and provide graceful fallback options for browsers that don't support a given feature.

Thanks, Elisabeth! Good to see there are no big issues concerning browser compatibility. That's a sign HTML5 is now definatelly a must-known technology for web developers.
