Overview

In this post, we take a deeper look at HTML5 and offer a simple proposition with a lot of complex consequences: HTML5 is both something entirely new, and yet nothing more than HTML was ever intended to be; and that once you really understand HTML5, you’ll change the way you code and even think about the web and your own web applications.

"Good short overview" - by JM on 21-JUN-2013

Perfect concise explanation of the html 5 buzz for the uninitiated.  Well, not perfect per se - this is a blog post, not a book, so the writing is sketchy. But as a web dev student wondering how things fall into place, I definitely found it useful.

By the end of the post I was like, "what?" I don't see the point of this whatsoever, and it was a complete waste of my time.

I do not understand the first review. This is a great, very succinct overview of HTML5 for people who are generally literate about HTML and want to know what the buzz is.
