Domain Explosion
In February 2014, a new group of top-level domains started, with approximately 1,000 added over the next 24 months. Some of the first to be adopted were .bike, .clothing, .guru, .holdings, .plumbing, .singles, .ventures .camera, .equipment, .estate, .gallery, .graphics, .lighting, and .photography. Literally any activity you can think of would now have its own 3 level domain.

Though HTML5 was orginally proposed in 2008, in October of 2014 the Web Consortium (W3C) officially released the final and complete revision of the HTML5 standard. HTML5 adds many new features such as <video>, <audio>, and <canvas> elements, as well as the integration of scalable vector graphics (SVG).
