HTML5 Day Cake

Happy HTML5 Day!

Yes, it has finally arrived. The holiday that puts all other holidays to shame: HTML5 Day! Every August 5th, we celebrate this truly festive occasion.

  2. Thanks Johan for celebrating HTML5 Day! National Underwear Day and International Beer Day now have a new companion.

    I just posted the picture of the homemade chocolate cake we had in celebration of HTML5. It was actually made a couple of days after the holiday. The delay was due to either me wanting to highlight the fact that HTML5 might not have 100% support until 2020 or procrastination. If you said procrastination…you would be…
