Minimal required code in HTML5

I've encountered this question repeatedly of late.
"What are the tags required at bare minimum for a html file?"
Earlier there were a bunch of mandatory tags that were required for any html file. At bare minimum, the recommended structure was: (ref: http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/struct/global.html)
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd"> <HTML>   <HEAD>     <TITLE>A small HTML</TITLE>   </HEAD>   <BODY>     <P>Small HTML file!</P>   </BODY> </HTML>
Yes, using capitals for the tags was the way to go! Those were the days of the purists and strict was the way to be. Now open your notepad and copy the above code, save the file as old.html and launch it in Chrome or Firefox. You will see only one line "Small HTML file!" shown. Now launch the developer tools in Chrome or Inspect Element in Firefox. This can be done by pressing CTRL+SHIFT+I in both…

Pageviews: FF vs Chrome vs IE

http://blog.chetankjain.net is a new blog and so the page visits are gradually picking up. Recently crossed a 1000 page views and Google stats throws up a nice picture on how the platform and browser split amongst the audience is.



Overall the ratio generally follows the current market trends. I've been following the trend regularly on my site and not surprising to see how Chrome is raising almost every week.

Sync Chrome versions and Chrome Extensions that I love

I just decided to live a little more on the edge and downloaded the Google Chrome Canary build, v13.0.x which is the developer build. But be warned, it could cause crashes though I've not faced any so far. Flash does seem to misbehave a bit ummm. Page loads are now definitely fast. Or do they seem fast to me :)

Meanwhile, between various versions of Chrome, one just needs to enable sync to automatically update bookmarks, extensions .. Its easily done as follows:

Click on the Wench icon on the top right and select Options->Personal Stuff
Click on Set up Sync...
Enter your Google user name and password when prompted.
You will be asked to Choose what to sync
Select the options you prefer. I checked them all.
Click on Ok and thats that.

Repeat this on your new browser version and you should have all the settings, apps, extensions, themes, bookmarks everything imported, rather synced.

Now here is the list of Chrome Extensions that I like and regularly use (no Orkut or Facebook here :P )

My Bookmarks fly to the Cloud

Updated: 15-Mar-2012

With latest version of Google Chrome (I'm using 17.x), you can now directly sign into Chrome from Options->Peronsal and access your bookmarks across computers. You no longer would need to export the bookmarks to Firefox using the Google Toolbar for Firefox, which is no longer supported by Google. The Google Toolbar is now available only for IE.

I have a queer problem of too many! I surf a lot, I subscribe to a lot and I bookmark a lot. Some numbers: 1 laptop and 1 netbook at home, 1 laptop and 1 desktop at office, sometimes its my Kindle and definitely my N900 when I'm on the move. So 6 devices out there and usually 2 browsers on most of them (yes Kindle only as one webkit based experimental implementation).

So my bookmarks are all over the place, scattered over at least 10 different places. And each time I'm working on one box, I wish I had access to the bookmark I made a few hours ago on the other box. A…
