Billly Gates writes: Chrome and Firefox have slowly been adding new features for years in what is now becoming known as HTML 5 and CSS 3. The W3C decided not to wait until 2020 for HTML 5 and will publish a recommendation by years end. If all goes according to schedule it will be finalized by 2014 too. Features however were cut out such as workworkers and websockets from the 5.0 and css 3.0 specs. They will be part of HTML 5.1 by 2016. What is unclear is whether Internet Explorer is causing the delay as IE 9 still does not have things like webworkers and many CSS 3 features or are the new new Mozilla and Webkit specific implementations which are sometimes incompatible causing the delay? Other sites like HTML5test.com check for features in mailing lists too that are not W3C which is also causing confusion on what exactly is HTML 5? Either way the WC3 figures dividing the daunting task in steps like this will speed finalization so we can retire ancient browsers and make lives for web developers easier without specific browser css 3 features.
