Twitter brings out a new HTML5 version for iPad

Last Tuesday, Twitter announced that they will be rolling out a new version of its website designed for the iPad. The said adaptation, which is considered to be their first version for tablets, utilizes HTML5 and can be seen with partial differences compared to a regular desktop. With the HTML5-based, iPad users will experience better touch gestures and could even access Twitter information using the two-paned display bars.

According to Twitter mobile engineer, Manuel Deschamps, the new version for iPad mimics most of the features and would even offer exciting handset applications, which are also included in iPhone and Android. The HTML5 Twitter app will become available within this week, outrunning the upcoming HTML5-based Project Spartan of Facebook.

“The HTML5 app provides a great option for people who prefer to use the browser over native apps,” Twitter representative, Carolyn Penner, explained. “Its two-column view is consistent with the Twitter experience you’re used to (on, and it takes advantage of touch gestures and other device capabilities.”

Adobe rolls out for public preview its HTML5 web animations tool, the Adobe Edge!

Last Sunday, Adobe released a new tool called Adobe Edge. Aimed to coexist with Adobe Flash, this new tool will enable creative professionals to design animated web content using HTML5, CSS and JavaScript. And as the web goes more mobile, this new web design tool will continue to solidify Adobe’s top player position in the modern web infrastructure.

However, the company doesn’t see this as their way of caving in with the Flash vs HTML5 battle, since both technologies are still used by today’s web designers and developers.

Adobe Edge aims to provide the tools that will aid professionals to create web animations and – in the future – even simple games. But as of now, the software will focus on its core animation engine.

"The Web as we know it is evolving, and we are committed to making it more accessible across diverse devices." ---Christen Krogh, Chief Development Officer, Opera Software

Opera announced that they’ll be coming up with Sony TVs and Blu-ray players. The new Opera solution will be sporting HTML 5, OIPF and HbbTV support. However, Flash isn’t announced yet, but we’re wishing it will be included upon release.

“The Web as we know it is evolving, and we are committed to making it more accessible across diverse devices,” said Christen Krogh, Chief Development Officer, Opera Software. “Our ability to address key hybrid broadcast-broadband initiatives in numerous markets makes us a natural fit with Sony. By delivering both a global viewpoint and the necessary technology, we are able to stay on the cutting edge of the industry.”

Meanwhile, they didn’t include any other information about the devices which’ll be supporting Opera, but somehow we have a good guess that these devices are those presented during CES 2011.

Now you can enjoy watching your favorite YouTube videos anywhere using your iPhone or Android. Thanks to HTML 5, watching online videos will no longer require Flash!

YouTube unveiled the completely revamped model of YouTube Mobile today as it is designed with Android and iOS devices. It uses HTML5 to play video without requiring Flash and much of the interface has been reworked for touchscreen devices. More features such as the like/unlike flags, playlists and suggested searches were also incorporated since its last update. The new version of YouTube mobile is potentially more advanced than the dedicated YouTube app for iPhone because it can use higher quality when not on Wi-Fi. HTML5 is also designed to work with 3G. However, support for other platforms such as RIM, Symbian, and others is still not practical because the said platform can still experience lagging when implementing HTML5.
