The Benefits of WebSocket By Peter Lubbers & Frank Greco, Kaazing Corporation (This article has also been translated into Bulgarian.) Lately there has been a lot of buzz around HTML5 Web Sockets, which defines a full-duplex communication channel that operates through a single socket over the Web. HTML5 Web Sockets is not just another incremental enhancement to conventional HTTP communications; it represents a colossal advance, especially for real-time, event-driven web applications. HTML5 Web Sockets provides such a dramatic improvement from the old, convoluted "hacks" that are used to simulate a full-duplex connection in a browser that it prompted Google's Ian Hickson—the HTML5 specification lead—to say: "Reducing kilobytes of data to 2 bytes…and reducing latency from 150ms to 50ms is far more than marginal.

Wpf Over Websockets (WoW) – How to Pump WPF windows & animations to browsers over HTML5 Websockets And Canvas Over the weekend, I just put together a hack for pumping WPF windows over Websockets and rendering it using HTML5 canvas – also with basic mouse input support. For each user connecting to the server, a new window instance is created, and screen will be pumped over web sockets to the browser as base64 encoded images. These images are painted on an HTML5 canvas. The entire source code is here at codeplex – What does this mean? Once HTML5 specification is final - it is almost certain that it’ll be the most widely adopted platform for delivering applications to end users.
