Input type “color”?
I checked out some input type from HTML5 and I found out that the chrome support for the input type color doesn't work. My chrome version is 15.0.874.121 and the w3schools site says that it's supported since the version 12 :
My question is just : why that doesn't work for me? Is it a regression of the HTML5 support in Chrome?
I’ve got standalone versions of Chrome for testing (see http://www.oldapps.com/google_chrome.php), and neither Chrome 12, 13 or 15 seem to support <input type="color"> — they all just show a text field. (As opposed to Opera 11, which shows a colour picker.)
The Reddit article linked to in @WebDeveloper’s answer says that html5test.com reports Chrome 12 as supporting field validation on <input type="color">. This is true — html5test.com does report that for Chrome 12 (and doesn’t for Chrome 15), but I’m not sure what that actually means.
w3school is not a official doc. It has lot of errors. It's partially right though in this case. Just see this site http://w3fools.com/
As far as input type color is supported check this
