HTML5 Boiler Plate, a template for building HTML5 sites, has been updated to version 2.0. You can find it in GitHub here.

One particularly slick feature: it will prompt users of Internet Explorer 6 to install Google Chrome Frame, which no longer requires admin privileges to run.

Other new features include:

  • Uses normalize.css instead of the traditional CSS Reset stylesheet
  • A faster build script
  • Uses minified jQuery by default
  • Added Site Speed tracking for Google Analytics
