Microsoft Opens HTML5 Proving Ground

Microsoft launched an HTML5 laboratory for developers on Tuesday. The company intends the project to be a site where Redmond prototypes early and unstable Web standard specs from standards bodies such as the W3C and shares them with the developer community. One reason for establishing the lab could be that Microsoft wants to leverage its strong relationship with developers for the Web.
