Contemporary browsers are much more than just a window into the World Wide Web: Browser developers have turned the software into sophisticated application platforms in their own right. But browsers are not the same as hardware platforms--rather, they function as virtual environments accessible from a variety of platforms. For example, you can have Google’s Chrome browser on Windows, Mac OS, Linux, and Android devices.

The current set of Web browsers--Chrome, Firefox, Opera, Internet Explorer, and Safari--support assorted standards, including HTML 5, the latest version of HyperText Markup Language. HTML 5 is an ambitious extension of HTML, incorporating an array of features. The standard is still in flux, however, and the World Wide Web Consortium hasn’t finalized it yet. Some of the important new features in HTML 5 include canvas rendering, tighter integration of SVG (scalable vector graphics), and video and audio tags. These new elements are specifically designed to make it easier for Web developers to present and manage multimedia content. What HTML 5 currently doesn’t have is a built-in standard way to handle 3D graphics.
