You may have seen the program Zoomify, or similar programs like, OpenZoom and DeepZoom, which quickly display large resolution images on websites without large amounts of data being downloaded – only the part which is needed is downloaded. Most of these applications use some kind of plugin to work (e.g. Flash or Silverlight), so I wanted to see if we could create one without any plugin, using only the HTML5 standards.
So that I could test some of the new HTML5 features I put together a new clock design, called the world clock.
HTML 5 is an upcoming standard for the internet, and it has some rather nice features such as the canvas tag. The new standard is currently only in draft but has already been implemented on many browsers such as Opera and Firefox.
