I like being on the bleeding edge of technology as much as the next guy... but HTML5 adoption has been quite painful. There are so many goodies promised with HTML5, that I do wish it would just get fully adopted already! BTW, I have created any number of HTML5 examples, if anyone is interested -> https://www.ibm.com/developerworks/mydeveloperworks/blogs/bobleah/tags/html5

Thanks Bob! I was going to mention that you've been doing stuff in this space. But I'm glad YOU mentioned it. <div>&nbsp;</div> I've discovered - to my horror - that Firefox Nightly (on Ubuntu) doesn't seem to do the right thing with some of the new input types. But "doesn't seem to do the right thing" just about sums it up: What EXACTLY is a browser supposed to do with a date input field?

I have been playing around with the new HTML5 Form elements... now that FF4 is supporting some of them. Chrome has also done a good job of implementing some of the basic Form elements. I may publish some of my hacks soon... just need to find the time to pull it all together into a blog post. Overall, there is a ton of cool stuff coming... but it is very fractured across browsers.

@robhawkes (on Twitter) has written a whole book on HTML5 Canvas. I'm impressed there's a book's worth. This is actually my favourite piece of HTML5 - maybe because I've already written a web application that uses it. (Not a very impressive one - but that's MY time issue rather than anything else.) <div>&nbsp;</div> <div>&nbsp;</div> <div>&nbsp;</div> Here's the book: http://www.friendsofed.com/book.html?isbn=9781430232919 "Foundation HTML5 Canvas: For Games and Entertainment". <div>&nbsp;</div> <div>&nbsp;</div> <div>&nbsp;</div> Disclaimer: I've not read the book.
