HTML5 is the greatest thing ever, if only for its speeding up the death of Flash, whose final breath and expiration will be celebrated in song for generations to come.

One big thing is holding back everything about HTML5: Internet Explorer 8.

I think in about 3 years web developers are going to be as annoyed with IE8 as we were with IE6 a couple years ago. And IE8 may have an even slower and more painful death and hold back even more of the internet than IE6 did.

Even IE9 does a barely acceptable job of catching up with web standards.

And that's not even considering the clusterfark of natively-supported audio and video formats in browsers that support HTML5. Essentially, Microsoft and Apple are dicks refusing to incorporate OGG so if you do anything with native HTML5 audio/video you need the media in two different formats. But the audio engines in all browsers are buggy as hell now so until all that junk gets resolved, Flash is going to stay.

evilmrsock: cman: HTML5 is the most overrated internet sensation since MySpace

I've finally remembered to favorite you in orange as "often misguided, but often redeemable".

Can you explain to my moron designer that webkit is not another goddamn name for HTML5, Firefox is not going to "catch up to supporting webkit", and I'm not putting "faux animated CSS image masks", whatever the fark that means, in sites that need to support IE7 and 8? Please? Before I commit a felony on his face?


oh ffs. throttle him. now. do the rest of us front end developers a favor and just end it.

(and you can do relative miracles with microsoft specific filters, but damn are they a pain in the ass)
