A modern paradox is that it’s simpler to create complex interfaces because it’s so complex to simplify them. - Pär Almqvist
A man who works with his hands is a laborer; a man who works with his hands and his brain is a craftsman; but a man who works with his hands and his brain and his heart is an artist. - Louis Nizer
HTML5 is the latest evolution of the standard that defines HTML. The term represents two different concepts: - HTML5
- It is a new version of the language HTML, with new elements, attributes, and behaviors,
- and a larger set of technologies that allows more diverse and powerful Web sites and applications. This set is sometimes called HTML5 & friends and often shortened to just HTML5.
HTML5 has already become well known language amongst developers community and thus numerous HTML5 resources and tools are being created to assist developers and designers for achieving desired results.
HTML5 adds many new syntactic features. These include the new <video>, <audio> and <canvas> elements, as well as the integration of scalable vector graphics (SVG) content (replacing generic <object> tags), and MathML for mathematical formulas. These features are designed to make it easy to include and handle multimedia and graphical content on the web without having to resort to proprietary plugins and APIs. Other new elements, such as <section>, <article>, <header> and <nav>, are designed to enrich the semantic content of documents. New attributes have been introduced for the same purpose, while some elements and attributes have been removed. Some elements, such as <a>, <cite> and <menu> have been changed, redefined or standardized. The APIs and Document Object Model (DOM) are no longer afterthoughts, but are fundamental parts of the HTML5 specification. HTML5 also defines in some detail the required processing for invalid documents so that syntax errors will be treated uniformly by all conforming browsers and other user agents. - HTML5

The parallax scrolling effect has been popular ever since sites such as Nike's Better World introduced it on their websites a few years ago. The parallax effect with regard to interfaces has been around since the 1980's when it was first used in video game titles and subsequently in games themselves. More recently it started to make an appearance in web interfaces - you'll be familiar with silverbackapp which used the effect as part of the header. When combined with the scrolling functionality of a website, parallax scrolling effects can have a strong visual impact, especially when combined with some form of story which takes you on a journey. - Create a Parallax Scrolling Website ...
