I was recently thinking new web browsers like Google Chrome 6.0,Opera 10.60 and Safari 5 are supporting HTML5 and other new web standards and my question is XDA-Developers using those New Standards?.If NOT i think they should in order for a better and much faster experience on the site also for new additions to the site

WHAT DO YOU THINK???????
(feel free to comment on this post and say whatever you want about it concerning the topic)

BY THE WAY I LIKE THE NEW REDESIGN,GOOD JOB DEVELOPERS


(Vbulletin 4 has been RELEASED)

The forum is powered by vBulletin Version 3.8.5. I do not think XDA developers can do much.

As previous poster said they aren't actually coding the site. They are just running a forum application on their server. They can customize it, add in mods,and such. Now when Vbulletin changes then sure, but thats a long long long way away.

Ok I'll answer this one too. HTML5 is in no way ready for release. Its way too buggy and not able to keep up with flash. Ok I said it. Thats why all these companies are making iphone flash players rather then switching to HTML5.

What you mean HTML5 is no ready for release? HTML5 is a specification.

Yes but it is not ready for mass scale usage. Its too buggy right now and leaves to big of a void in between flash and HTML. ,, also I thought it was a language? hypertext markup language , but I guess its the same thing potatoe, pototoe.

Ok lets see if I can answer some of these.

1st, hundreds of sites across the internet is not a bunch or even 00.000000000000000000001% of the web.

2nd HTML5 of youtube is a joke, look at the quality. Theres a reason you goto youtube and it takes you to the flash version.

3. Hulu just came out and said there is no possible way they could provide their service on HTML5, the technology just doesn't exist yet.

So while I know you guys are chomping at the bit for HTML5 to take over the world and slay the evil adobe monster, it ain't gonna happen. Because as HTML5 matures so does Flash.
