Why You Don't Have To Be a Web Developer To Love HTML5
Companies such as Apple have already jumped on the HTML 5 bandwagon, calling it the "web language of the future" and a "Flash killer" but haven't been so quick to throw in the details for mainstream users.

- Geolocation which lets a service locate and use your location
- Drag-and-drop items to and from the desktop to the browser
- Quicker website loading through the computer's graphics chip
- Use of browser applications offline
