Firefox 4 beta – an overview and review sources, with small walk through.
HTML 5, the overhaul of upcoming Web markup language currently under way at the Worldwide Web Consortium (W3C). Many claim the HTML and XHTML standards have become outdated, and that their document-centric focus does not adequately address the needs of modern Web applications. HTML5 aims to change all that.
Among the announcements made at today’s Google I/O keynote is WebM, a new open-source, royalty-free video format based around the VP8 codec intended for use with HTML5 video. The WebM project’s goal is to develop “a high-quality, open video format for the web that is freely available to everyone.” The project has the backing of Google, Mozilla, Opera, and numerous other companies. If it catches, on, it could settle the rift that currently exists with HTML5 video support, thus speeding up HTML5 adoption.
