Google Tech Talk: HTML5 demos

Friday, September 26th, 2008

I gave a talk at Google on Monday demonstrating the various features of HTML5 that are implemented in browsers today. The video is now on YouTube, so now you too can watch and laugh at my lame presentation skills!

The segments of this talk are as follows. Some of the demos are available online for you to play with and are linked to from the following list:

  1. Introduction
  2. <video> (00:35)
  3. postMessage() (05:40)
  4. localStorage (15:20)
  5. sessionStorage (21:00)
  6. Drag and Drop API (29:05)
  7. onhashchange (37:30)
  8. Form Controls (40:50)
  9. <canvas> (56:55)
  10. Validation (1:07:20)
  11. Questions and Answers (1:09:35)

If you're very interested in watching my typos, the high quality version of the video on the YouTube site is clear enough to see the text being typed. More details about the demos can be found on the corresponding demo page.

HTML5 Live DOM Viewer—Now in Your Browser

Thursday, August 14th, 2008

Earlier, I blogged about running the HTML Parser inside Hixie’s Live DOM Viewer using the magic of the hosted mode of the Google Web Toolkit. Back then, a compiler bug in GTW 1.5 RC1 prevented the parser from running as JavaScript in the Web mode. Google has now released GWT 1.5 RC2, which contains a fix for the bug.

So without further ado, here’s Live DOM Viewer with an HTML5 parser running as JavaScript in your browser.

Try pasting in the SVG lion or some MathML in Firefox 3 and Opera 9.5.

Known problems:

A big thanks for the GWT team for making this work!
