HTML5 is currently under development as the next major revision of the HTML standard. Like its immediate predecessors, HTML 4.01 and XHTML 1.1, HTML5 is a standard for structuring and presenting content on the World Wide Web. The new standard incorporates features like video playback and drag-and-drop that have been previously dependent on third-party browser plug-ins such as Adobe Flash, Microsoft Silverlight, and Google Gears.
This post is not about the new HTML5 but about an interesting and simple game inspired by gmail, created by a Creative Technologist! It’s a game based on HTML5 developed as a “thank you” to the Gmail team for their ongoing work to improve the webmail galaxy.
