HTML 5 and Firefox 3.5

Version 3.5 of Firefox will provide more comprehensive support of HTML 5, as detailed in the changes notes about the version on the Mozilla site.

Audio and video, offline, drag and drop are now implemented. Support is improved to Ajax and DOM too.

The video tag works like the Canvas tag, with in content a text that is displayed on non-compatible browser:

<video src="xxxx.ogg" autoplay>   Your browser does not support HTML 5 

The MOV and OGG formats are supported.

As with Canvas, it interacts with media by JavaScript instructions.

var v = document.getElementsByTagName("video")[0];;  

The audio tag works similarly.

Firefox 3.5 is a major change with the implementation of HTML 5, which will be further improved in following versions and this will be true also for other browsers, including Internet Explorer.
The browser resembles more and more to a graphical interface for online applications.
