The topic of web security is always on peoples mind. While it is a serious problem people seem to make it more like the bogey man and less like the solvable problem that it is. You do not need to worry about a mystical hacker coming at you if you follow a few simple rules that you have probably seen over and over again while surfing the web. Some of the rules include making sure that you have a good, hard to guess password. Another one of the rules is to make sure that you are careful when you are clicking on links. And there are several others that you have probably heard in the past.
But there are a new set of concerns that have been rearing its ugly head about the open web and other problems that someone might have. And this problem is how the web is changing with the new addition of HTML5 and CSS3. These are new web technologies that are trying to make the web more like desktop usage. And if everything goes according to plan, you will use less desktop software in the future and more of the web version.

So if you are a front end developer for the web, then make sure that you have security in mind when you create your application.
