It seems a number of HTML5 input types remain unsupported by Firefox and IE and that makes no sense. I am told this problem will be resolved very soon but when can we expect this issue handled. e.g I would want to be able to use all the latest HTML5 input types but many have yet to be implemented in both firefox and IE are there security concerns that make this a problem? e.g type="date", type="color" , type="tel" ,... ??
