Hello Mak,

I guess you´re using a windows OS for your RCP client with the swt browser.

By passing SWT.NONE to the constructor of the swt browser, it will use Microsoft´s Internet Explorer version you have currently installed on your system.
Unfortunately IE 9(the newest stable version) does not support every HTML 5 feature yet.

As an alternative you could pass SWT.MOZILLA to the swt browser´s constructor and use MOZILLA instead of the IE.

To make this work you´ll need to run a xulrunner (developer.mozilla.org/en/Getting_started_with_XULRunner)

To define that xulrunner properly for the swt browser see this : www.eclipse.org/swt/faq.php#specifyxulrunner

Best regards,

Simon

One other thing to note is that if you're using Eclipse/SWT 3.6.x or
older then your SWT.NONE-style Browser on Windows will run in IE7
emulated mode, even if you have a newer IE version installed. As of
Eclipse/SWT 3.7.x you will get the full capabilities of your installed
IE version.
