Wow, HTML 5 had a brilliant time at Google IO last week. Here’s a recap of some of the top news coming from the event regarding the technology.
While Murdoch may not know what the Internet is (so much so he decided just to break the paradigm with his paywalls), at least some people from the old industry are starting to see some sense regarding the web.
Sports Illustrated demoed a really awesome incarnation of their magasine built entirely in HTML 5, including articles, videos, interactive galleries and more.
Check out what TechCrunch had to say about the site.
Adobe announced the release of the HTML 5 pack for Dreamweaver CS 5 to coincide with Google IO.
The pack allows Dreamweaver to autocomplete, give sample renderings, and export HTML 5 versions of websites created with the application.
At the same time, Adobe announced that the VP8 codec will be supported by Flash, which will be upgraded by the end of the year to support Google’s open source video format for the web.
