For the longest time, HTML5 was far behind Flash in terms of game development as it didn’t offer a native experience.

The Microsoft Internet explorer has been the most popular browser since forever, it still is. But its share has rapidly dipped from the 95% high seven years ago to around 50% and dipping.

Google announced this week, that it would begin upgrading offline access to Gmail from Gears, its now obsolete plugin, to HTML5. On Tuesday, Gmail dropped offline support for Chrome, Internet Explorer 9 (IE9), Firefox 4, Safari and Opera.
