New form features in HTML5

Tech, Web

I’ve read many articles about how fantastic HTML5 is going to be. But I haven’t really seen many articles showing how it can enrich the end-user experience until I saw this post on the Opera website. It details all of the new elements that are available to web developers in the new standard.

HTML5 aims to standardise some of the most common rich form controls, making them render natively in the browser and obviating the need for these script-heavy workarounds.
