HTML 5 Current Browser Support – Part 1 – IntroductionTuesday, March 24th, 2009 by Sebastian Markbåge
Many people are still frightened of implementing code according to a working draft. Especially since it’s not scheduled to be complete until 2012. In my opinion, those fears are largely unfounded at this point. The primary reason for this is that many of the features have been available in IE for many years and the HTML 5 specification centers around keeping some historical compliance. So the primary threat for lagging cross browser functionality has already been eliminated. It is also the WHATWG’s estimate that browsers will have full compliance and people will have started utilizing this new standard long before it is finalized. For these reasons, by the time you read this, you may already be a late adopter.
