Notes are here: http://christianheilmann.com/2013/04/20/making-your-html5-efforts-worthwhile-notes-of-the-sotb3-talk/ Presentation at State of the Browser 3 in London, England. Sorry about the sound, a video will be available soon. When the web was defined as an idea it was based on the principle of independence of hardware, global location, prosperity or ability. This changed drastically when the mobile web came around and we got sucked into a world of software dependent on certain hardware and global location. HTML5 and the mobile web based on open technologies became something that needed conversion to native code to access the new hardware people use. This is against the main principle of the web and means we duplicate efforts all over the place. In this talk Chris Heilmann shows how Mozilla is battling this trend and how brushing up your HTML5 solutions allows you to reach millions of new users forgotten by native technology but nevertheless eager to be online.
