A service worker is a script that is run by your browser in the background, separate from a web page, opening the door to features which don't need a web page or user interaction. Today, they already include features like push notifications and in the future it will include other things like, background sync, or geofencing. The core feature discussed in this tutorial is the ability to intercept and handle network requests, including programmatically managing a cache of responses.

The reason this is such an exciting API is that it allows you to support offline experiences, giving developers complete control over what exactly that experience is. Presentation.

HTML5 is more than just hype, and it’s more than just HTML. HTML5 and related Web development technologies governed by the W3C enable you to take advantage of some great features that make developing Web applications easier for you and consuming them friendlier for your users. Here are some examples: New HTML elements Geolocation Document object model (DOM) storage Semantic elements HTML5 forms CSS media queries ASP.NET developers who write LOB applications can easily exploit HTML5 forms because ASP.NET now ships with ASP.NET MVC 4 application templates, which make it easy to integrate HTML5 into Web Forms and previous versions of ASP.NET MVC.

Continuing with the HTML5 focus, I want to investigate the new declarative form input types along with new attribute support. No JavaScript Required To outline the new form features of HTML5, consider the form for entering contact information into a Web page, as shown in Figure 1. Clearly, there's nothing particularly fancy about this form from the user perspective -- until you consider that it's implemented entirely in HTML5 -- no JavaScript required.

Get down! How to keep footers at the bottom of the page

This can look bad, particularly on a large screen. Web designers are often asked to push footers down to the bottom of the viewport, but it's not immediately obvious how this can be done.

Now, after a few years of practice I have finally figured out a neat way to do it.
