Apple, Microsoft, Google, and others team up to support standards site Web Platform Docs

Web development has become increasingly complex in recent years, and now a new website has launched — with the backing of several major industry players — in an effort to become the definitive resource for developers looking to explore web standards. Web Platform Docs, which launched today in a self-described “alpha” form, wants to become “the place to come for answers to your trickiest (and simplest) development and design questions about the Open Web Platform.” The project is backed by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) standards body, as well as the likes of Apple, Google, Microsoft, Facebook, and others.
