Apple issued a press release following the WWDC announcing Safari 5:
SAN FRANCISCO—June 7, 2010—Apple® today released Safari® 5, the latest version of the world’s fastest and most innovative web browser, featuring the new Safari Reader for reading articles on the web without distraction, a 30 percent performance increase over Safari 4,* and the ability to choose Google, Yahoo! or Bing as the search service powering Safari’s search field.
I forgot to post this a few days ago, but I wanted everyone to know — Chrome 5 is here!
- Full Screen Mode
- Bookmark Syncing
- Automated site translation
- More HTML5 support (Geolocation, App Cache, Web sockets, etc)
- Drag and Drop file upload support
This can only mean a few things;
- The new iPhone 4G will be announced (very likely)
- Apple will move away from AT&T (hopefully, I’m getting doubtful though)
I also believe there will be other announcements regarding development environments for HTML5. Given Steve Jobs’ strong HTML 5 support over the previous months, and the recent love/hate relationship (mostly hate) with Adobe — something tells me we will be seeing Apple competing with software for HTML 5.
Rich snippets let you share your reviews, people, businesses, events and recipes more accurately with Google. Why do what helps Google? Because Google will, in turn, help you.
If you properly implement rich snippets in either microdata, microformats or RDFa — you will see more traffic thanks to enhanced listings in Google. Google provides useful snippets in search results that are more likely to draw the eye and attention of end users.
An article written by Sean Christmann over at Craftymind reviews some cool effects you can create with HTML5, Video and 3D featuring the Blender created Big Buck Bunny.
Saw a great HTML5 presentation today at Apirocks.com: HTML5 Presentation. Has tons of useful demos of new HTML5 technologies that you can actually USE TODAY.
Everything must move forward. The web is no exception. The strange part is, for a while, the internet didn’t move much.
Nowadays the web seems to be pushing forward fast, very fast. Here are some of the new “happenings” on the internet, and where it may be going.
Recently I’ve been posting on HTML5 versus Flash. Many people who are not familiar with HTML5 may not know exactly the amount of power that has been provided with the new spec. HTML 4 was nice, and a big upgrade, but I believe HTML 5 will be an even larger upgrade over HTML4.
The reason we are talking about HTML5, is Apple seems to be placing their bets on it. Apple continues to refuse to have Flash running on their controlled devices (iPhone, iPad, etc) and seems to be pushing for HTML5 to take over.
Think about it, why would you care when the Google Analytics code is loaded? All it does is capture data, as long as Google gets it — it may as well go out at midnight. The new code enables an “async” request in HTML5. › Continue reading
