Html5 – Still A Long Away To Go by ign1tew3b: 11:27am On Nov 26, 2010
The Web Hypertext Application Technology Working Group (WHATWG) started work on the HTML5 specification in June 2004; Ian Hickson of Google, Inc. is the editor of HTML5. HTML5 still has a long way to go.

A long way to go
The specification is an ongoing work, and is expected to remain so for many years, although parts of HTML5 are going to be finished this year and some are already implemented in browsers.

According to the W3C timetable, it was estimated that HTML5 would reach W3C Recommendation by late 2010. However, the First Public Working Draft estimate was missed by 8 months, and Last Call and Candidate Recommendation were expected to be reached in 2008, but as of this writing (November 2010) , HTML5 is still at Working Draft stage in the W3C.

The editor of the HTML5 specification expects the specification to reach the Candidate Recommendation stage during 2012. In sum, HTML5 still has a long, long way to go, so don’t get too excited just yet.

Obviously, browser vendors are keen on implementing as much of the HTML5 spec as possible, especially areas like handling audio and video. This becomes more of a turf war, though, since at this point we are dealing with competition for the Flash and Silverlight plug-ins.

Despite this, you shouldn't stop yourself from trying out some of the features. After all, not all of the present HTML specs have been approved either.

Many of the HTML5 features degrade gracefully so at least give them a try (for example in HTML5, you can have
<input type="tel" /> and that will for example, if you have a cell phone, only bring up numbers. It will still work for non-compliant browsers).

The only constant in our business is that we will always be reading to stay up to par.

Note: This is a general message and not meant to put down the OP's comments cool

I Hate it When Pple pitch Html5 against Flash/Silverlight they are all different and handle diffrerent task.HTML5 is widely used infact most of its new features have been around in some browsers. even the HTML Canvas tag has been around for ages but html5 should pls adopt 3d Canvas to it so that Web Gaming will be one step away alreay know few programming creating 3d objects on the Web, WebGL, imagine playing Unreal Tournament on your browser, Sweet
