5 HTML5 Javascript APIs to keep an eye on

Here is a great article that details what is making HTML5 so damn sexy.

This article defines five HTML5 Javascript API’s that open up a web browsers mobile capabilities.

Overall these functions speak directly to HTML5 mobile game development and give developers more tools to make a gaming environment that is OS-agnostic .

These API’s focus on providing relevant handset data to the browser to create a more immersive engagement and give developers more data points to play with.

  • Battery Status
  • Gamepad
  • Device Orientation
  • Geolocation
  • Page visibility

As the mobile web continues to grow we will see more and more API’s looking to make a browser be more than a just browser.

If anyone has a chance to implement these API’s I would love to hear any feedback on performance, cheers!
