Here is another impressive HTML5 example, while its not exactly advanced it does show demonstrate the raw power of HTML 5. This could also be used as a Windows Vista desktop widget or even for Windows 7 once it is released. This code could be changed to check the status of your domains. (Please test this out by disabling your internet connect either unplug your network cable, or go into “Work Offline” with your browser)

To render what you see above you will need the following code:
[stextbox id="alert" caption="Status monitoring" color="ffffff" ccolor="ffffff"]Network monitoring:
