HTML5 Project Makes Browser Emulate Tablet Reading Experience

ubergizmo: "Since Amazon has gotten more generous with their payouts for publishers of ebooks and the ebook market growing at a phenomenal rate, it is safe to conclude that more and more people are hopping aboard the tablet bandwagon to carry their virtual books everywhere they go. The HTML5 project from the Center for Public Integrity intends to make lengthier stories a whole lot easier to read on both desktop and mobile browsers, so that means you need not have to own an ebook reader of sorts to get the same reading experience (sans the mobile one, of course). All content will be displayed in a horizontal, widescreen format that lacks irritating banner ads and other content links. As the template uses HTML5 for its rendering, the format is 100% mobile-friendly."
