HTML5 For A Portfolio Website (Not A Game)
To represent myself online I will be making a website that contains my portfolio: the projects I worked on, curriculum vitae, etc. It will contain a lot of (big) images.
I could do it in standard HTML but I'd like to have fancy effects/animations, to be able to stand out more from the competition. Considering I can work extremely fast in GMS, I was considering the idea to use GMS to make the portfolio website, and export in HTML5. I do not currently own this module but if things work out I'll get it.
Can someone give information/ideas on the possible drawbacks of this idea?
How is image loading handled in HTML5? Does it download the entire "game" before displaying it? (Which means loading time will become a serious issue)
Or is it possible to download/load images from the server on the fly, so I only have to download/load what's currently displayed onscreen?
How's compatibility with stoneage browers, such as IE6?
