I recently searched for a datepicker widget for web applications.

Jquery-UI is great, but then I discovered html5 has it:
Code:
<input type="date" id="deliveryDate" />    


But it only works in Chrome. No IE or Firefox support.

In you opinion why is it taking so long for all browsers to adopt html5?

i guess they are busy implementing other html5 features,
since this date picker could be solved by javascript for the time being.

another reason probably is,
there got html5 standard, committee members
no enforcers or standard regulators
and even if such body exists, i see no chance they could enforce their standard to major internet browsers.

maybe we just need a new html browser that break the whole standard and start doing clean, easy, simple web layout printing and format.

In order to use pure HTML5 -- it (pure HTML5) also must be served by web servers.
Are we confident, that sparkly "new" browser will be useful at all?

Even though current implementations of HTML5 are not very optimal, they could be improved easily if the will to do so was there.
But some companies and their "partners" (1, 2) would rather prefer if the status quo remained unchanged.

As for the adoption of the standard... in addition to being lazy, people also dislike standards and want to implement their own, obviously "better" standards.

The question is not web servers but web browsers. Web servers just serve whatever they are told to serve. Some of these features are already implemented in browsers but disabled.
