    HTML5 and CSS3 awesomeness

    I was reading this (Google killing IE? Intriguing!) and the article linked to a demonstration of HTML5 and CSS3 capabilities, and it's awesome!

    I didn't read everything there, but I played with some CSS3 stuff and it's incredible. I can't wait for a flash-free fully open standards empowered web.

    promising future of web standards (Web 3.0 / Semantic Web / Sweb) . It's all so exciting, and the Chrome frame sounds great. some CSS3 features are supported by current major web browsers like the text-shadow. I believe these new standards will make developers design less graphics yet code more to render the exact effects with much faster loading speeds. who needs sIFR when you can have custom fonts loaded by just a couple of CSS lines? I've been experimenting for quite a few days, it's so great and I can't wait till the full release of all features.

    HTML5 and CSS3 are awesome!

    I'm actually doing my dissertation (I study web design & development at university) on certain elements in HTML5 and it's proven to be a very interesting subject that I'm glad I chose! The work in progress can be viewed here for those interested.

    Can't say I've looked into CSS3 as much as I have with HTML5, but it's on my to do list. Also, what I've seen so far with CSS3 is really nice.

    It seems both Apple and Microsoft agree that HTML5 is the future. These really are bad days for Adobe Flash.

    It's not surprising though. For some time now I've thought that flash will have to eventually be superseded by open standards. When I saw what AJAX could do few years ago "this will eventually replace flash" was among the prevalent thoughts. That process seems to be under way.

    I think Steve Job's advice to Adobe is good (putting aside any qualms anyone may have against anything else he said). Adobe should focus on creating tools that enable developers to create great HTML5 applications. They should think beyond Flash.

    It seems that HTML5 is still behind Flash in performance: according to these benchmark tests.

    It'll probably improve though. Browsers still don't have very good support for it.

    Flash and HTML5 cant really compare,Flash is a lot more powerful,you can create sites that look far better in Flash then HTML will be capable in the near future,but Flash is a platform that doesn't really have a bright future on the web,not because of things like SEO,but because it is closed,it eats up a lot of resources and requires a very fast connection.
