is pretty straightforward to use: you can either enter a YouTube URL on the site, or add "slow" to the URL of any YouTube video (remove the "S" from HTTPS, too). Then you can watch speed painting
at a slower speed
, adjusting the playback speed with a slider. Sorry, the audio doesn't slow down. (Hat tip to Greg_Ace

In 1975, the blockbuster movie Jaws
was released. The series culminated in 1987 with a fourth movie, Jaws: The Revenge
. The NES game Jaws
(online) was released that same year, incorporating elements of both the original and fourth movie. But you probably don't know about the game that Mirrorsoft commissioned in 1984 from the husband-and-wife coding team, Dave & Sara Crud. They made a ZX Spectrum movie tie-in for the original film, only for rights holders to back out and leave it unreleased for nearly three decades ... UNTIL NOW!
Or at least that's the backstory MeFite malevolent

CSS Tube Map
, a re-creation of the iconic map of London Underground routes, rendered entirely with HTML5 and CSS3*.
If you'd like a more compact** means of getting around, here is a CSS TARDIS
Or if you'd just like to forego the CSS in favor of something more solid, here's a Tube Map made of Lego
on display at several stations.
* "for use with webkit browsers, such as Chrome and Safari - Firefox is also supported", sorry IE
**at least on the outside... but the outside is all that it shows

-- HTML5 permits websites to store considerable data on your local disk. It was originally expected that the browsers would impose a ceiling on this, but IE, Opera, Safari, and Chrome do not. A properly coded HTML5 site can completely fill your hard drive. [more inside]

Who needs machine readable dates? As far as I can see there are two target audiences for this operation. The first is obviously social applications that have to work with dates, and where it can be useful to compare dates of two different events. An app must be able to see if two events fall on the same day and warn you if they do. However, as a target audience social applications are immediately followed by historians (or historical, chronological applications). After all, historians are (dare I say it?) historically the most prolific users of dates, until they were upstaged by social applications. [more inside]

WebGL, the 3D technology that's associated with HTML5, continues to make giant strides in diverse areas:
Exploration of human anatomy: Zygote Body, released yesterday, and BioDigital Human, the successors to Google Body (previously)
World Visualisation: WebGL Earth, Nokia's 3D Map of the entire earth (previously). WorldWeather and The WebGL Globe, a Google project that displays all kinds of data. Also: Where Does My Tweet Go?
Games: browser ports of Team Fortess 2, Quake 3 and Rage (a developer’s diary). SkidRacer, an entire game in WebGL. Mini Mass Effect (not yet playable, sadly).
Tools: 3Notes.js, a visual scene editor. Developer documentation. More resources. [more inside]

Over the past several years, Mozilla's collection of developer documentation
for its own web browsers has turned into a wiki-editable reference of web standards for developers working with all
browsers, hosting a comprehensive, no-nonsense reference of HTML
, the DOM
, and more
. If you find yourself turning to this reference frequently, dochub
will tell you exactly how many browsers will support that new standard. Still want to use that shiny new standard? Modernizr
will let you detect missing features, and load tiny bits of code
to make old browsers support the latest HTML5 hotness.
