Websockets: working where?

I now want to start implementing some software that should work with the flow of browser-server. I want to understand, now a RFC-6455. Wikipedia is conflicting information. In the Russian article says that the support is enabled by default only in Chrome; Firefox and Opera by default turned off support for websockets due to security issues. The English wiki says that Firefox has disabled support for websockets in 4-5, which is indirectly confirmed by test Firefox 10 on page WebsocketsTest.com.

Of course there are workarounds like Socket.IO and Sock.js but these things are like crutches [please, no gamers]. If support for websockets will be enabled in the near future, I do not see sense to implement the Protocol of choice of transport. If there's no other way, you have yet to work with one of these technologies.

If you don't know the answer to the subject will be asked just go to the link (WebsocketsTest.com) and indicate your browser, its version, and testID (see bottom of the page after passing the test). Thanks in advance for your help.

To work cross-browser WebSocket is better to use the wrapper WebSocket.js. where there is no ws flash is used as a proxy for the ws (though adds hemorrhagic flashpolicy, as not all open port 843, then the stick must be breaking and 80). In General, WS is a General accepted standard in the RFCs and in HTML5. To cut it, nobody will only continue to develop.
Like standardization :)
Thanks, that's exactly what I was hoping to hear. - triston_Hilpert9 commented on October 8th 19 at 03:33

For such purposes (to find out supported features browsers) use caniuse.com. WebSockets
