Today I’m learning about the HTML5 geolocation API. It looks very simple to use.
However, as a user I’m disappointed that the browsers have no controls for tweaking location. Firefox and Chrome both think I’m somewhere on the UW-Madison campus (incorrect). This is my desktop machine, so I understand that the auto-determined location will be worse than my GPS-enabled devices. But why don’t they let me override that location?
Chrome/Firefox plugin recommendations or other workarounds requested!
By the time I get up to speed on HTML5, it will have been superseded by HTML6. 😉
Thomas Landmann 🙂 but HTML5 is HTML forever!
“The WHATWG HTML spec can now be considered a “living standard”. … We will no longer be following the “snapshot” model of spec development, with the occasional “call for comments”, “call for implementations”, and so forth.”
