Internet & Networking There's a bit of ruckus going on at the moment in the world of HTML5. A number of people are claiming that Adobe has blocked the latest publication of the HTML5 standard. However, after diving into the actual mailing list threads, it becomes obvious quite quickly that it's nothing but a misunderstanding. Update: Masinter replies: "No part of HTML5 is, or was ever, 'blocked' in the W3C HTML Working Group - not HTML5, not Canvas 2D Graphics, not Microdata, not Video - not by me, not by Adobe."

It's completely relevant to me, just not you. Even if it's a little overkill compared to the average user, I think the performance of a bunch of ads is more important than playing a single video, since that's what people are going to run into most of the time they're browsing. And if a heavy browser can run into issues on a modern machine, it follows that someone on an older machine is going to have problems as well even if they don't surf as heavily.
