Continuing my series of articles of technologies for today’s marketer, I recently ran across a whitepaper from Sprout that’s an overview of HTML5 for creative agencies (you have to request to download it – it is free).
It explains HTML5 capabilities such as canvas, video, local storage, geolocation and forms. The reason it’s important for agencies and advertisers to understand these is because it opens up new ways to engage consumers online.
Of course, the IE9 beta is a great way to test HTML5 sites and we have a variety of videos about developing for HTML5. Plus, the Internet Explorer Testing Center compares all the HTML5-capable browsers and there is a full set of HTML5 articles and samples on MSDN.
