The Web is a living, evolving beast, and it seems certain that the future will hold more interaction with our everyday activities than it did in the past. The mechanics for these interactions to happen are falling in place virtually every day, but a new standard is on the horizon to tie these ends together and make our lives - and the lives of browser makers - more fluid and transparent with its support.
That standard is HTML 5, the latest in a series of markup languages that rule the world wide web with a velvet glove. The first draft of HTML 5 appeared on January 22, 2008, and it has been under revision ever since. But while it may be a wonderful time for the propeller-heads to celebrate a new standard for all things online, how does it help the average computer user?
Since a detailed discussion of changes would probably exceed both the space here and the patience of the average curious user, we will focus on some of the major changes, and how that will make our online experience better. TestFreaks
