Internet Explorer 8 has support for many HTML5 features, but do you know what they are or how to use them? We’ll do a quick overview of those features, see how they’re supported and then dive into the code and see real examples of how they work. We’ll take an existing website, and implement HTML5 features to make the website more performant, and powerful in Internet Explorer 8, and other browsers that have support for some HTML5 features.
