    From the last time I have read about it, HTML 5 is still in draft form. I think most of the newer browsers such as IE7, Firefox 3 etc have only just starting implement it.

    However what I'm more interested to see is the accompanying APIs - such as ways to handle the browser back buttons. Not too sure if you feel the same way but, back buttons have been a nightmare for me.

    Why? Are they having a negative affect on your bounce rate? I used to find that was the case as well but I've been putting a lot of effort into making sure I have relevant in content links to my other pages, which tends to increase pageviews.

    In the past I used to rely on navbar/sidebar links and links at the bottom of pages or posts, now I always include my links inside the article using targeted anchor text, and I find my site bounce rate has dropped considerably. One of my sites used to have a bounce of 82%, now with in content links it's dropped to 53% and think I can reduce this further.

    Not experiencing what you are experiencing. Everything seems to be fine on my side. I just have the google virus, called
    Code:
    cookbook.com virus or something like that.
    it plays around with my searches. Everytime I search something and click on it, it would go to some random search engine site.

    HTML Code:
    <bgsound src="test.mp3" loop="-1">
    You can place that little snippet in the <head> of your HTML document, and it will play the audio for ya!

    That would be really nice. There are other codes which allow this. But these would make it much easier

    Thats one of the problems, however my main grudge with back buttons is that
    they do not go well with my e-commerce web applications. Back buttons are fine and
    dandy if you are hosting static websites, but if you have dynamic websites and the
    user suddenly decides a use the back button in the middle of a transaction - can
    cause headaches.

    But yeah ... we will see how HTML 5 turns out
