Times are changing on the internet…. As most of you geeks know the internet is pretty much made up of html code… html 4 at the moment…. Well now…
HTML5 is under development and we are starting to see the first applications of it (its been around since early 2008)
We’ve done a bit of research and here are some of the things HTML5 will do for us in the near future.
– Drag n drop support – (Drag your files directly to and from your desktop into the Internets storage)
– Video! fully integrated so things like iPhone will be playing vids more readily.
– Crazy search functions – As in – pages will be divided up into content specific sections meaning when you search for a product, you specifically search the product sections of the pages in the web, not just a mass off words and code, this could work for contact details, pictures, songs whatever.
Here is Chris Milks and Aaron Koblin (google)s interactive video for the Arcade Fire – the song – “We Used To Wait”
It uses HTML5 code and is “Geopersonalised” meaning – it uses your location to combine video and flash to customize your experience of the film. ENJOY.
