I just released my custom HTML5 WordPress skin, and it is a relief to get back to being able to post after working on this. Over the course of working on this I found many new HTML5 tidbits that really help us struggling web developers.
Over the next week I plan on highlighting some of the tech I used so keep an eye out for the next post. Some cool stuff to mention:
- New Form Fields that preset iPhone and iPad entry according to field type.
- New search field capability supported in Safari.
- Only 8 images required to make the whole site, rest done with CSS3 gradients and rounded corners
- Google Chrome Frame Support, making the web faster and removing IE 1 user at a time.
- Google hosted code fix for IE
- New tags such as section, article
- Added microformat support
- And many more, stay tuned..
