TML 5 is completely ready for worldwide implementation. I know, some developers might not agree, but how else could you play a game of Pac-Man coded in the stuff? Pac-Man, Quake, what else is there?

Apple’s iPad launches in the US this coming Friday (April 3) and this week sees the arrival of the new, free Brightcove Experience framework for HTML5.
For those that are not aware, Brightcove offers Apple and others a “way to publish, distribute, and monetize web video for the iPad and other Apple devices.”
Brightcove’s HTML5 video solution is also important for some of the leading UK media – Sky, Virgin Media, Five, C4, The Mirror, The Guardian and The Times all use the platform. Sky has also recently expressed excitement about the possibilities of Apple’s [...]
Usually people are wanting to convert their static html pages to some dynamic content management system. I’ve run into the issue of needing to go the other way.
A few professors at GMU love to use WordPress for their classes. It’s a really great way to get more student participation and involve some of those who aren’t so talkative in class.
But these blogs are usually only needed for one semester, and then just sit there. This can be a security risk if they are not kept up to date, and is cumbersome when trying to update many of them (one professor had over 30 blogs!).
HTML5 is going to bring us some powerful and sophisticated web apps, says Steven Sinosfsky, President of Microsoft’s Windows and Windows Live Division.
But if you’re expecting the head of the Windows division to be worried about that, he suggests you think about how browsers will achieve their ambitions.
“The world for a while went down this path [with] the browser as this tiny little program you just ran on top of the OS, this cool thing that didn’t care about the device hardware or the OS. That can work for a period of time but underneath the hardware is changing rapidly [...]
We love HTML5, declares Internet Explorer General Manager Dean Hachamovitch. “We love it so much, we want it to actually work.”
The preview of IE9 released today at Microsoft’s MIX developer conference supports HTML5 – including SVG and the audio tag (video will be in the final release). But it still has some issues with speed, as we’ll come onto.
And it includes hundreds of [...]
Apple and Google love it. Adobe allegedly fears it (although it probably shouldn’t). Microsoft is sort of squinting at it. It’s HTML5, the future of the Web. So, er, what is it?
HTML is the language that tells your browser what to do, whether that’s showing a LOLcat or running a browser-based application, and HTML5 is its latest incarnation. It’s designed to handle the way the Web works now and in the future, which means support for Web applications and multimedia, and your browser already supports some of its key features.
Still none the wiser? Don’t worry: here’s [...]
HTML5 is a Flash killer. Hmmmmm. Say it over in your head a few times. Sounds pretty good, doesn’t it?
In fact, if I wrote a blog post with such a snappy, eye-catching title as that, it might even get a few Diggs. Heck, it might even make the front-flipping-page! (Front page of the Programming section, maybe – let’s not go nuts.)
Unfortunately, there’s a little problem with my initial statement. OK – I admit it – it’s a big problem. It’s the kind of hulking problem that, if it asked to borrow a quid from you, would end up with your wallet, any loose change [...]
Editor’s note: This is a guest post written by Jeremy Allaire, founder and CEO of Brightcove. Prior to Brightcove, Jeremy founded Allaire Corporation which was subsequently acquired by Macromedia due to the success of their web development tool ColdFusion. At Macromedia, Jeremy helped create the Macromedia MX (Flash) platform. You can see a recent interview of Jeremy here. As one of the guys who helped build the Flash Platform, we asked him to weigh in on the recent HTML5 v. Flash debate.
The recent introduction of the new Apple iPad has stirred the discussion over the future of web content and [...]
