HTML5 Rocks!

So, in case there was any doubt on Google’s love of HTML5, they have decided to create a new website about it. They have aptly decided to name this website, HTML5Rocks.com. I kid you not.

For those of you out there who are wondering what you’ll find at this website, they’ve actually got some pretty cool and educational stuff including a slide show that you can view inside any HTML5-compatible browser. Additionally, they’ve outfitted the HTML5 fan site with a code playground, and tutorials on different things that HTML5 can do. With topics such as “Best Practices for a Faster Web App with HTML5” and “Reading local file in JavaScript“, there seems to be plenty of useful content already.

Additionally, Google has made the HTML5Rocks website an open source project on Google Code allowing people to contribute samples, tutorials, whatever. I intend to take a closer look at it in the coming days, especially after taking a look at some of the cool stuff Ash has pulled off in HTML5 for a few Boxkite clients. I haven’t made the jump yet, but I certainly hope to soon.
