I attended today our ADOGO (Adobe Developers of Greater Orlando) meeting. Adam Fortuna spoke about the new stuff coming with the HTML5 standards by the W3C. (You may read it here: http://www.w3.org/TR/html5/)

It was a very good presentation, he and his colleague Daniel from Izea showed some examples using the localStorage feature where you can now store data locally on the client’s computer (maximum 4MB). That will be good for working offline with data entry and then connecting later to upload.

The new tags <header>, <footer>, <aside>, <article> are cool, but the coolest I think are <video> <audio> and <canvas>. Easy way to show video, graphics.

Unfortunately, those features are supported only by Firefox 3.x and the Mac browser, no Internet Explorer yet (it will be a long time until Microsoft launches IE9).

Well, good job Adam, and thanks for sharing.
