But the use of HTML5 features without a significant amount of thought behind them can leave customer data exposed. Molly Holzschlag discusses the types of HTML5 features which cause significant concerns in HTML5 security and provides a basic guide to identify which areas of a site or portions of an application can benefit from these features, and those that can cause risk."
