"Pretty good - worth a read" - by Gwyn Jones on 21-MAR-2013

Pretty good coverage of what's on the horizon with HTML5 - especially given the 'hacks' format. Must confess that I skimmed the later chapters - on Web Workers, Connectivity and Node - since they represent capabilities that are lower priority for me at the current time. Nevertheless, I would recommend this book.
