HTML5: The Technology Changing the Web - WSJ.com
A year and a half after  Steve Jobs endorsed it in an unusual essay, a set of programming techniques called HTML5 is rapidly winning over the Web.
That promise—and the lure of Apple Inc. devices in particular—is sweeping aside alternative technologies. In the latest development, Adobe Systems Inc. said Wednesday it will pull back on pushing the rival Flash format opposed by Mr. Jobs for mobile devices.
"HTML5 is a major step forward," declares venture capitalist Marc  Andreessen, who helped invent the first successful browser, Netscape, in  the 1990s.
The technology allows Internet browsers to display jazzed-up images  and effects that react to users’ actions, delivering game-like  interactivity without installing additional software.
