@mrjoe's talk on the UX of HTML5 given at Future of Web design in May 2012...
Are you sure you want to delete this scoop?
Video.js, the open source HTML5 and Flash video player created by Steve Heffernan, cofounder of cloud-encoder Zencoder, has just been updated to version 3.0. The result promises to make life easier for developers by letting them write in HTML5, but get results in both HTML5 and Flash.
NOT STRICTLY UX BUT THERE ARE MAJOR UX IMPLICATIONS...
Through HTML5 and the corresponding standards, modern browsers get more standarized features with every release. Most people have heard of websockets that allows you to easily setup a two way communication channel with a server, but one of the specifications that hasn't been getting much coverage is the webrtc specificiation.
HTML5 development company appMobi has is releasing a new browser today called MobiUsthat will give mobile Web apps the same type of functionality that now is currently only enjoyed by native apps for platforms like iOS and Android. AppMobi thinks of MobiUs as the replacement for Flash in mobile - it renders mobile websites like a Flash extension would and gives developers device access in ways previously unavailable to in HTML5.
MobiUs is technically a mobile browser. That is not the way appMobi thinks it will be used though. The company expects it to be function more like a browser extension. Like Flash, users will be prompted to download it once and from then it will just run in on the device. According to appMobi CTO Sam Abadir, MobiUs, "is the Flash killer now as opposed to five years from now."
"MobiUS accelerates the timeline for HTML5," said Abadir. "DirectCanvas is like Flash for mobile."
