2012 stuff, HTML5 shims

Modernizr adopted by Microsoft to deal with HTML 5 in pre-IE9.

Polyfill is what we called code to handle cross-browser issues with HTML5.

HTML5 shiv is a kind of shim.

WebSocket takes place of what apparently we called Comet but I had thought of just a form of AJAX. In any case, combine that with surfing on a tablet or phone, and might as well say sayonara to the Web As We Knew It.
