Prior to joining the W3C, he worked for Opera Software, and prior to that, for Openwave Systems - most of that time involved with design, development, testing, and deployment of software for mobile operators in Japan.

Abstract & Slides

This presentation will provide an overview of key new browser technologies that are being added to the Web platform: features from the HTML5 spec, from CSS3 specs, and selected technologies from more than 40 other specs which are currently in development in various W3C working groups. The presentation will take a look at which browsers have implemented the features, with an eye on giving you an idea of which features you can use now -- which are "market ready" -- and which features are not there yet.
