With the arrival of Firefox 3.5, Safari 4 and the new 3.0 beta of Google Chrome, browsers support some great new features including canvas and the new audio/video tags. [...] We've created a little experiment which loads 100 tweets related to HTML 5 and displays them using a javascript-based particle engine.'

Disclaimer: I work for a company that produces TV ratings.

It is probably true that diaries (in addition to people meters) are still used in the USA. In Europe, practically all countries have a people meter panel.

Personally, I find this a bit odd as the USA is probably the biggest TV market in the world. One would think that they would also have the most accurate audience measurement system.
