  • W3C – World Wide Web ConsortiumWHATWG – Web Hypertext Application Technology Working GroupDOM Level 0 – DOM as it existed as of IE/Netscape 3.0
  • W3C Recommendation – What makes it an official standard. Working Draft -> Candidate Recommendation -> Proposed Recommendation -> W3C RecommendationHTML5 Recommendation features exhaustive testing not done before for any prior standardsFeature support entirely browser-dependent, but Opera, Firefox, Safari, and (upcoming) IE9 all implement a number of different new features.
  • Could accept user input and allow them to draw; could also draw entirely based on scriptsCoordinate-based system
  • A way around Flash video, as described in the news article seen earlierUnfortunately, kind of a non-standardized standardWhich type of video is supported very browser-dependent – to hit them all, need to provide different types
  • Beneficial for mobile devicesHigh accuracy typically means GPS, low means triangulation
  • Autofocus – avoid scripting issues wherein focus is grabbed after images load (caused by timing of onload event typically used for setting focus)iPhone screen shots show the benefit of using “email” or “number” input typesIf the new input types are supported, it reverts to type=text… this is standard for everyone, even IE6, so no reason not to use the new types now
  • Based on original Microsoft implementation (supposedly?)JavaScript-heavy, but native support in the browser will make it much easier to implement
  • A number of attempted hacks in the past – MS-specific solution, “Flash cookies,” etc.Some worked, but all were eventually browser- or plugin-dependent, with varying limitations and APIsUp to 5 MB at this point, with no real mechanism for requesting more
