HTML5: Still Rocking!

As announced on the blog, we’ve just pushed a bunch of new content to our developer site, which launched earlier this summer.

Anyone that’s following HTML5 knows how fast things are moving! To keep you informed with all of the amazing features landing in today’s browsers, we’ve added five new articles, a heap of new resources, and a much needed RSS feed for staying tuned in. We're also revealing a new component of the site, the HTML5 Studio. It’s a collection of standalone demos that highlight hot, new HTML5 features working together.

If you'd like to contribute code, guides, or samples, we’re working on a third-party contributors guide. Please stay tuned! In the meantime, you can get in touch with us on the bug tracker or via @ChromiumDev.


  1. Elements of CSS3 such as @font-face, and APIs such as Geolocation, are not part of HTML5. You are doing the developer community a disservice by conflating a number of unrelated concepts and technologies; it's similar to the incorrect practice over the last few years of referring to anything involving JavaScript (such as the dynamic modification thereby of CSS property values) as Ajax.

    One expects such a lack of understanding and misuse of buzzwords from managers, but not from technologists.

  2. All your CSS examples seem to only use "-webkit" is this the standard? Can I please stop having to write the same styles 4 times like this?

    -webkit-transition: margin 2s ease-in-out; -moz-transition: margin 2s ease-in-out; -o-transition: margin 2s ease-in-out;
    transition: margin 2s ease-in-out;

  3. Lets just call it Web 3.0 (Location based, Mobile, HTML5/CSS3/ECMA) so we know the users will have a whole new experience while we sit around cursing at browsers all day like we have been for the past 15 years :)

  4. I'm sure that HTML5 will bring us new standards.
