Noty is the name of the HTML5 application I developed for the recent HTML5 competition hosted at Nettuts. Unfortunately I did not win, but I did learn a lot about HTML5 and related technologies.
It is available for purchase at CodeCanyon.
Noty is a simple widget for taking notes about the current page. A potential use is taking notes on a blog post for commenting later.
Noty uses several HTML5 and related technologies, using the browser’s native functionality wherever possible. It is designed to work in modern browsers.
- Drag-and-Drop support via the browser’s native API . You can save excerpts from the page simply by highlighting text and dragging to the widget.
- Persistent storage of notes for browsers that support it. Notes are saved in the user’s borwser for future visits.
- Sharing of notes with link via Email or Twitter
- Automatic URL shortening for sharing via bit.ly
- Ability to scroll directly to the source of a note on the page (not available in Internet Explorer)
- Fancy CSS3 effects (box-shadow, gradients and transitions)
- Fully semantic HTML5 markup
- Collapsable widget, remembering the state for the next page. This is useful in case the widget covers part of the page.
- Tested to work in current versions of Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer and Safari

Playing sounds on a webpage can be challenging since different browsers use different HTML elements that handle embedded sounds, and using them all breaks standards compliance. Fortunately, Flash can play sounds and is widely supported by all modern browsers. Even better, you don't even have to own Adobe Flash or know how to use it to take advantage of its sound-playing ability.
jQuery supports all major browsers, has a small file size, and is used by major websites such as Google! Here is the description from their website:
