HTML and CSS Reference
Network and location APIs
This chapter covers
Finding the user's location and proximity to places and people of interest
Communicating directly with content from other servers
Having the server push information to the user rather than rely on pull
Building websites that work when there's no network connectivity
The previous chapter discussed HTML5 API s that worked directly with
the content in the browser, but one of the key features of the web is that
it's not about standalone computers: it's about a connected network.
HTML5 has a number of API s related to connectivity and communication,
and you'll learn about them in this chapter.
Again, the examples in this chapter rely on a basic understanding
you're more of a designer than a developer, skip ahead to chapter 7,
where we start to look in detail at CSS3.
