HMTL5 offers several new JavaScript API’s that allow developers to do things that were not easily possible on the browser before: Web Sockets for client server interaction via TCP, Web Storage for storing data on the client browser, a Web SQL Database (yes a local database that is accessed via Javascript directly, so much for SOC!), an Application Cache, Web Workers to provide asynchrony with a language (JS) that does not support multithreading, a Notification API for broadcasting messages to the client, and a GeoLocation API so that your location can always be known! Additionally there is a new Selectors API and JS Drag and Drop API.
