Following are the few interesting stuff in HTML5 …

  1. A new audio element that represents a sound or audio stream.
  2. A new canvas element that provides scripts with a resolution-dependent bitmap canvas, which can be used for rendering graphs, game graphics, or other visual images on the fly.
  3. A new nav element representing a section of a page that links to other pages or to parts within the page.
  4. A new video element for playing videos or movies.
  5. An API for selecting files from the local filesystem and reading all or part of their data—see the W3C’s companion File API document for more information.
  6. An event-based drag-and-drop mechanism.
  7. Support for microdata, which offers a simple way to embed semantic (meaningful) markup into HTML documents—see the W3C’s companion HTML Microdata document for more information.
  8. Support for spelling and grammar checking.
  9. Support for web storage, which makes it possible to store structured data in key/value pairs on the client side—see the W3C’s companion Web Storage document for more information.
  10. The elimination of the center and font elements because their effects can be achieved through CSS.
