Why is everything else around us developing so fast, but the web is so slow to adopt anything? It takes years just to add even the simplest improvements, or updates! I would like to see improvements to selectors. The way elements are selected on a page is hard work! Why can't a child select a parent in hover or any other target? HTML5 is a great advance, but in this case we still have to rely on jscript for most things!
