The WHATWG HTML 5 Forums

In case you have not subscribed to The WHATWG Blog,

The WHATWG Forums

was created.

This forum elicits discussions which may not be suitable for the Specifications Mailing List like, “HTML5 Heck?”, “Why should I care about error handling?”, “When will <dialog> be implemented by Opera or Firefox?”, “What happens in IE7 when I use <canvas>?”, “Why isn’t it iXML?” and any others one is apt to find on forums.


This reply addresses <canvas> and IE,

“<canvas>, for example, is in Firefox, Opera, and Safari (and IE if you use the Google Canvas extension for IE); many of the Web Forms 2 things are in the latest version of Opera, as is the cross-frame messages feature; the Storage APIs are in Firefox; the drag and drop APIs are in Safari and IE.”

See the The WHATWG Forums: A discussion board for the HTML 5 community page for the standard registration details.
