What's more, the technique known as False Start requires that only simple changes be made to a user's browser and appears to work with 99 percent of active sites that offer SSL, or secure sockets layer, protection. "We implemented SSL False Start in Chrome 9, and the results are stunning, yielding a significant decrease in overall SSL connection setup times," Google software engineer Mike Belshe wrote in a blog post published Wednesday. Taming 2D Transforms in HTML5 Canvas. This is the second post in a series on creating custom interactive visualizations in canvas.

Taming 2D Transforms in HTML5 Canvas

The first post is here. The canvas API contains five methods (rotate, scale, translate, transform, and setTransform) used to transform the drawing context. We typically use the transform API when we want to rotate or scale some element of the visualization (especially text). In canvas, we don’t actually move the elements. WebSocket and Socket.IO. My favorite web technology is quickly becoming the WebSocket API.

WebSocket provides a welcomed alternative to the AJAX technologies we've been making use of over the past few years. This new API provides a method to push messages from client to server efficiently and with a simple syntax. Let's take a look at the HTML5 WebSocket API: its use on the client side, server side, and an outstanding wrapper API called Socket.IO.

[ This chapter does not appear in the book. ] I made things easy for myself in the last chapter by relying on a GPS receiver to generate latitude and longitude information.

Chapter 35. Geolocation without GPS

In this chapter, I throw away the GPS device (figuratively, of course), and determine my position and geographical address (my geolocation) without its help. Although this seems a daunting task, I'm encouraged by the availability of geolocation in HTML5. Even when there's no GPS receiver attached to the computer, a tiny piece of JavaScript executed by the browser can return your latitude and longitude.

Swarm of XeBees » HTML5 – Multithreading in JavaScript with Web Workers. Digg Sharebar defines an API that can be used for running scripts in background threads. In traditional browsers javascript was capable of running in a single thread, due to which it was difficult to run background tasks.

Using this concept, the browser makes a standard AJAX call to the server that waits until it receives a message. Asynchronous Pages and Asynchronous Controller allow you to have long running HTTP requests without using precious ASP.Net threads. On the server, there are two resource limits to consider with IIS and ASP.Net: HTTP request limits — in IIS7 the default limit is 5000 ASP.Net thread limits — in IIS7 the default limit is 12 x number of CPUs For a typical ASP.Net application (and ASP.Net MVC application), an HTTP request always uses an ASP.Net thread. Introducing HTML5 Web Sockets – taking bidirectional communication on the web to the next level.

Introducing HTML5 Web Sockets – taking bidirectional communication on the web to the next level

Background My first memory of pushing out information to the end user was a feature in Internet Explorer 4 when you could subscribe to information and get it pushed out to you.
