Whats new in HTML5?

I started reading up on html5 tags on my favorite .. Here are the ones I find very interesting and useful to know. Note: some of them are not supported yet in major browsers. New Features : Offline storage support ditching cookies. New Tags Elements : menu - Not yet supported. But a step towards making web sites like desktop apps nav - Gives a navigation header of links meter - Provides a progress bar like control to denote process completion progress - Similar to meter above time - represent time as machine parsable wbr - Mark places that are suitable for word breaking. useful in formatting paragraphs media : audio - Self explanatory play audio figcaption / figure - caption for an image and an image or chart itself. video - Most expected feature that is touted to rid of all the flash woes.  track - Support for closed captions etc. graphics : canvas - Basically treat browser window area as a drawable canvas element using js.  f
