Embracing HTML5 and CSS3
The web is constantly changing and 2010 will be no different. Recently the Web Standards Project announced a change of direction, which really isn’t all that surprising. The “war for web standards” as Aaron Gustafson call it is far from over, but a lot of people in the industry has transferred to the Good Side and develop solutions which have an ever increasing level of standards compliancy.
Last year we saw the demise of XHTML2, enabling the HTML5 specification to go full throttle. Together with CSS3, this gives bit of a stir in the web ecosystem.
HTML5 also has an element for video support, which will put further pressure on Flash. Another incentive is the lack of Flash support in the recently released iPad. But remember that the HTML5 specification is scheduled for release in 2012, so don’t hold your breath just yet.
Change. Embrace it.
