More about HTML5 and Chrome


I am glad that I had switched over to Chrome. Otherwise it would have taken me lot more effort to go through the site created by Marcin Wichary and modified by Ernest Delgado.

If you want to get a feel of what is possible with HTML5 this is a good place to look at. Here is the link. (You can use left and right arrow key to navigate)

It is one single page but it behaves like a presentation. It showcases enhancements in JS, HTML & CSS:

  • JS
    • Client Side Storage (Web SQL Database, App Cache, Web Storage) – you can enter text which gets saved locally, you can create a local table
    • Communication (Web Sockets, Worker Workers)
    • Desktop experience (Notifications, Drag and Drop API) – drag-drop works beautifully – for text as well as picture
    • Geolocation
  • HTML
    • Semantics (New tags, Link Relations, Microdata)
    • Accessibility (ARIA roles)
    • Web Forms 2.0 (Input Fields)
    • Multimedia (Audio Tag, Video Tag)
    • 2D and 3D drawing (Canvas, WebGL) – neat – you can rotate, pan and resize photos
  • CSS
    • Typography
    • Visuals
    • Transitions, transforms and animations

This reinforces my belief that HTML5 is going to be a game changer. Adobe should be worried – justification to use Flash becomes less and less! What about iPhone / iPad native applications – what about Microsoft Silverlight? This will surely be a fillip to Web 2.0 making it much easier to create RIA applications.

If you are not already using Chrome, I strongly recommend that you install Chrome and try this.

    IE9 is leading & much ahead of all others, desperately waiting for IE9.

      Problem!

      IE9 does not run on my XP – but Chrome does.

      • Pranav Singh says:

        Indeed Microsoft has confirmed IE9 willn’t be available for XP.
        You at least need Vista SP2 or Later windows version.
        Might be they want to promote Windows 7 thats why DirectX10 & DirectX11 are also not available for XP.😦

      • Udayan Banerjee says:

        Fortunately Office 2010 beta runs on XP!

      • Pranav Singh says:

        Microsoft is making no secret of the fact that the latest release of Windows Live will be tailored to Windows 7 and Windows Vista, while not supporting Windows XP at all.😦

    Drag and Drop is there in GMail now with Chrome Browser

    • Pranav Singh says:

      Drag & drop in gmail is indeed supported with current latest versions of Browsers including IE8 also

  3. Lata says:

    Drag and Drop is implemented in GMail …

    Certainly Both HTML5 & CSS3 will be game changer for future websites, but unfortunately this will happen in late 2011 only. Since default video & audio support(Without plugin) in HTML5 is a setback to new Adobe Flash Player, Microsoft Siverlight & they are definitely playing to support their products. Further Geolaocation API is hard ball for all Browser players till now. All Browsers are coming with HTML5 & CSS3 support & till now Safari4(Windows) is best, Chrome is near to it, Firefox & Opera are also following the trail.
    Ofcourse not to forget IE9 CTP(Community preview) has promising future, following all standards of HTML5 & CSS3 so far.
    So let us see in near future wo will lead & make a new way…
