We should be good to go now; looks like the changes Dani made didn't sync to all our nodes. Let us know if you don't see them or if it happens again.
How old is the version you are running? I have only been using Solarwinds for a year or so but viewing the page source it appears my install of Orion makes extensive use of HTML5. Two obvious examples are drag and drop resources and the environment view that looks like it was done entirely in HTML5. In fact HTML5 used all over the place in Orion. It's what makes asynchronous page loading possible. That is just another example. You should probably upgrade to the latest version. Sounds like you are at least 4-5 releases behind.
I wonder why the PM's have not responded yet to the many entries and inquiries about HTML5 request. If they're not going to do it, I'd rather for them to just say so instead of us getting the "silent treatment" on the matter.
I am no PM obviously and he doesn't directly address HTML5, but you can see on the SAM roadmap and read Alterego's clarification of it underneath that they are working to modernize the UI. I'm not sure whether or not it will include HTML5, but most modern websites, including .Net based ones, use HTML5 features in them.
