Editorial Hands up if you use Firefox. Have used it? Know about it? Heard of it? 'Sites up and down the World Wide Web today will be celebrating five years of Firefox. When I sat down to write this I worried about having to list the history of its features and landmark events and the news of the past five years. Other sites will be comprehensively doing that, there is nothing I can add to that list that Google can't surmise. Instead I will be telling you what Google does not know, my story of Firefox and what Firefox has meant to all of us.

Beautyful HTML5?

Looking at the link the author is so proud of. I can only recommend not following it, because it is a hideous design and most importantly because it is very wrong.

Just for the reference: Please don't use HTML5 elements that have not been implemented yet. Once <section> is implemented in any browser this example page is going to get rendered differently. If too many pages uses <section> before it is implemented it will mean it can never be implemented without breaking existing pages. So please, only use the few tags that have been implemented like <audio> and <video> and let the rest alone until you have a browser that supports them to test in.

And while HTML5 specifies how to browsers should parse broken HTML, that doesn't mean you should use broken HTML. So please still write valid HTML. A standard for error-correction is not a recommendation for making errors.
