HTML 5 is the next major revision of the HTML language. Many major software players are working toward these enhancements to HTML since 2004.

While it is still under development, Google is using HTML 5 extensively to build their major communication & social networking product Google Wave.

HTML 5 will provide flexibility and interoperability to the developers, and enable more interactive and exciting websites and applications.

I installed Windows 7 on a test machine and it works great. Much faster then Windows Vista. But I was facing an issue that my wireless internet on this machine was slow. Very slow and may be slower then a dial up connection.

This happens when system wake-up from sleep or hibernation. To resolve this issue you can try to disconnect and reconnect your wireless connection and you should be good with speed.

Google Wave is something new that Google is working on and looks amazing. From the initial preview, document & video this looks like Google answer to Facebook, MySpace, SharePoint & various chat & email programs. The new emailing mechanism is simply cool. Check this out...
