HTML5 and CSS3 have very quickly moved from being tentative new standards to the base standards for every major desktop and mobile browser. HTML5 is now just HTML, a modular, living standard that no longer needs a version number.

Now that we are no longer fighting over platforms, it’s time to put the specs aside and revisit the construction of user interface: how do we raise the bar for stellar user interface on the web?

Meta Refresh is a follow-up to DocType HTML5 from 2010-11 and is a conference on web UI engineering.

Less is More: Learning from mobile apps

Submitted Mar 10, 2012

To inform though case studies and best practices in mobile app design, ideas that can now be realised in the mobile browser.


The sophisticated mobile web is upon us. HTML5, Less CSS etc enable great browser based experiences.
But taking the content and navigation structures of desktop sites and squeezing them in to the small screen rarely delivers a good user experience. The native mobile app ecosystems have spawned the greatest revolution in UX design in the history of the web. This session will run through case studies of what makes the mobile app so compelling, and highlight how this can be brought in to the browser.
