What was HTML 5 being targeted to Desktop vs Mobile app?
“targeted to desktop but many of the things is applicable to the mobile [exprience] as well”

you can specifi relations
new form elements
search boxed
Mobile – input fields will have built in X
Menu, progress bars,

can place semantic inforamtion for specific tags.

without web fonts there are only 9 fonts. This allows you to use huge amounts of fonts.

easier way to create columns.

Stuff you can do with the new HTML 5 features.
Text wrapping
Setting opacity. CAn adjust opacity of differnet layers.

Shadows to text. Who needs photoshop!

“Ypu can do things in the browser which would have required you to do it in Photoshop”

Transitions are much smoother, easing is used instead of uprupt tansitions of movements. Wow this looked really really nice.

Since there is an issue with which browser can use which codex, it will be interest to see how it all plays out. The idea is to have pne common codex but who knows!

Desktop Experience
Drag and drop support

Web storage

What is an OS app
Should run online and offline
Should be useing Web DB to allow user to work on the system even when they are not online.
Webb Storage was brought on by google gears.
They wanted a way to read stories and still read them offline
They downloaded a few stories for the user and stored them in the db.

How is it getting the location? Is implemented by each browser so its really up to the browser to fetch it.

Desktop notifications
Chroms 4 windows
Might be able to use this pushing alerts to pepole on mobile phone.

Sandboxing flash source code into Chrome. Will make it more secure.
