Quote from Google blog:
“…We built “20 Things” in HTML5 so that we could incorporate features that hearken back to what we love about books—feeling the heft of a book’s cover, flipping a page or even reading under the covers with a flashlight. In fact, once you’ve loaded “20 Things” in the browser, you can disconnect your laptop and continue reading, since this guidebook works offline. As such, this illustrated guidebook is best experienced in Chrome or any up-to-date, HTML5-compliant modern browser…”

The book uses the latest Internet technologies in a sensible way so that features like off-line storage and the latest stylesheet formatting that are available with the most modern browsers are demonstrated, while at the same time the book is still accessible with older and non-web kit browser versions.

An outstanding use of HTML5, CSS stylesheets and graphics to explain these concepts.
