Vimeo and Yahoo add HTML5

Both Vimeo and Yahoo! have committed to HTML5. Reports indicate that the internet streaming-video service Vimeo added HTML5 support for embedded video in order to be more compliant with the iPhone and iPad. Until now, the site had displayed embedded video using Adobe’s Flash technology.

Yahoo! Mail announced that it has released an HTML5 mobile webmail client specifically designed for the iPad. The company says that the new app is optimized for the gorgeous large screen of the iPad. The new Yahoo! Mail HTML5 interface is available now, and Yahoo says that this is just the first version, and that they’ll be constantly iterating to add new features, improve performance, and make Yahoo! Mail for iPad the best it can possibly be.
