Animations can add a whole new level of interest to web sites. In the past, adding an animation has generally meant sticking a Flash movie on the site, requiring that the visitor have the Flash player installed on their system. Along with adding an extra layer of complexity and complication to things, it also means that the public and open-sourced nature of the web and the Internet is thwarted by a proprietary technology. It's for reasons like this that the iPad doesn't even support Flash. So how do you get Flash-less animation? Enter the world of HTML5. This new standard supports animation natively. Presumably, however, it's not going to be the easiest thing in the world to sit down with your text editor and bang out a full-length animation—you're probably going to want some help.
