HTML5 has made a significant improvement and could make the web more friendly and easier for developers mainly to make that possible.

However as you have noticed Internet Explorer keeps pushing back making any improvement pain in the neck and very slow.

As you can notice also that HTML5 is not well supported by the rest of the browsers but will soon and the gab between them and IE will remain big.

However unlike many of web developers i hardly believe that HTML5 will actually kill Adobe Flash, there's an important difference between both even with Canvas. Developing flash-like utilities in Javascript isn't as simple as ActionScript not to forget the improvements Adobe has done in its latest releases and will continue adding.

Actually IE9 made a huge improvement in javascript speed and HTML 5 compliance.

Gmail is actually using HTML 5.

Now you can drag and drop attachment to your New Message windows.

Arcade Fire meets HTML5
Posted: 30 Aug 2010 08:09 AM PDT
What would a music experience designed specifically for the modern web look like? This is a question we've been playing around with for the last few months. Browsers and web technologies have advanced so rapidly in the last few years that powerful experiences tailored to each unique person in real-time are now a reality.

Today we’re excited to launch a musical experience made specifically for the browser. Called “The Wilderness Downtown”, the project was created by writer/director Chris Milk with the band Arcade Fire and Google. Building this project on the web and for the browser allowed us to craft an experience that is not only personalized, but also deeply personal for each viewer. “The Wilderness Downtown” takes you down memory lane through the streets you grew up in. It’s set to Arcade Fire’s new song “We Used to Wait” off their newly released album The Suburbs (which you may be familiar with, especially if you were one of 3.7 million viewers who live-streamed Arcade Fire's concert on YouTube earlier this month). The project was built with the latest web technologies and includes HTML5, Google Maps, an integrated drawing tool, as well as multiple browser windows that move around the screen.


“The Wilderness Downtown” was inspired by recent developments in modern browsers and was built with Google Chrome in mind. As such, it’s best experienced in Chrome or an up-to-date HTML5-compliant browser. You can launch the project and learn more about it on our Chrome Experiments site at www.chromeexperiments.com/arcadefire.

We hope you enjoy it.

It has many new features. And, as always, some of them are dangerous for our anonymity. I suggest not to enable it for now and not to do as long as it will be possible (while they are not aggressively making us to use it).

Do you think you are anonymous now?
What features are dangerous? And how do you enable or disable HTML5?
