Help HTML5 labs launched by Microsoft
Advertisement
#1

Bangalore: HTML5 Labs which is a test and sandbox site got launched yesterday by Microsoft which simplifies the work of developers to research with early draft specifications of emerging HTML5-based technologies.

The site of HTML5 Labs has been designed to enable Microsoft to prototype early Web standard specifications from standards bodies such as World Wide Web Consortium, which is shepherding HTML5. HTML5 Labs site is taken care of and managed entire by the Microsoft Interoperability Strategy Group. The credit for gaining standards-based mechanisms so as to make an addition of multimedia capabilities to Web applications along with functionality such as bidirectional communications by the developers is entirely given to the HTML5 specification and associated technologies, as stated by Paul Krill from InfoWorld.

"These prototypes will help us have informed discussions with developer communities and give implementation experience with the draft specifications that will generate feedback to improve the eventual standards," said Jean Paoli, general manager for interoperability strategy at Microsoft, in a blog post. "It also lets us give the community some visibility on those specifications we consider interesting from a scenario point of view but which are still not at the stage where we can consider them ready for official product support."

The initial prototypes available on the site include IndexedDB, which is a W3C draft Web specification responsible for holding bulk quantity of structured records in the browser and WebSockets that refers to a technology that aims to simplify the complexity around bidirectional, full-duplex communications channel over a single TCP socket. IndexedDB also permits for high performance exploration based on the data provided whereas WebSockets can be easily put into operation in the browsers and Web servers and are easily available to be used by any client or server application.

"So please experiment with these prototypes and tell us and other working group participants whether the APIs are usable. We are making them available to help improve the final specifications," Paoli said.

A warning note has already come from Microsoft on the HTML5 Labs site according to which the specifications are unstable and will change. It also plans to support HTML5 in its upcoming Internet Explorer 9 browser as it believes that developers can easily gain a strong base to put together their experiences on IE9 through HTML5 Labs.
