    Thanks for this. I've long been of the opinion that HTML5 and CSS3 were bloated with a lot of unnecessary features. I remember when Chrome was launched it was lightweight and fast. Not so today. I also like the constraints on the use of JavaScript. I think JS has been heavily over-used and is largely redundant.

    The need for a stripped-down subset of HTML/CSS/JS is evident, and it is good that Google have addressed it.

    My only criticisms are:

    - They seem to have introduced variants on standard HTML tags for mobile devices, which also work on PCs. I applaud the idea of making them work on PCs, but question the need, in these circumstances, for different Tags?

    - It seems to me that the enhancement of the <IMG> tag to overcome the need for page redraw when the images were downloaded largely duplicates the facility to set the WIDTH and HEIGHT already present in the standard <IMG> tag?

    I suspect, or at least hope, that there is a performance advantage in the approach that they have used.
