Stephen Celis has a fun post talking about Douglas Crockfords HTML 5 comment, namely:
…the HTML5 project is misguided… It is trying to do too much without a clear mission that defines the problems it is solving. I think the project needs a reset.
He comes back:
Where’s the glitz, though? The dazzle? What can an artist do without a canvas? We could have audio and video, and no plugin! You won’t miss my congratulatory advertisement this time. You deserve to know. And to know the joy of SQL, finally, in the browser. Forms with placeholders and validations built-in! Vectors! details! And the semantics, oh the semantics! What’s a poor old Google to do, parsing through divs and spans when it could have nav, article, and aside? Won’t somebody please think of the robots?
But let’s leave the HTML argument be, for now. We can at least agree that CSS is in a wonderful place. JSON’s little half nephew is doing all right.
And then he finishes up with the fun demo that is embedded in the video above too, else point Safari 4 or Chrome.latest.devchannel to his post.
