Is SVG, websockets, WebGL supported?

I am just starting to study this technology.  From what I read so far it seams very limited.  In my other "web apps" I use SVG, HTML5, websockets and webgl using Firefox and chrome as the development and target platforms.  From reading there is only xml, js, css, png, and jpg. 
Also, I have found very little documentation on what JavaScript objects are supported. XMLHTTPRequest?

Where is the supported JS documented? 

I am sorry for sounding disappointed, I was hoping for "smart TV's" to be smart and be able to offer people a better or same user experience as the web.

  • I am assuming you are referring to Yahoo! Connected TV? If this post is for Y! Connected TV you may post in the respective forum at: http://developer.yahoo.com/forum/Connected%20TV

    Many of the TVs currently running Y! Connected TV would not technically support HTML5. For this reason we use JS as it has a small footprint and uses far less processing. That said, we are looking at other technologies.

    In regards to XMLHTTPRequests, try to use JSON instead of XML. Parsing large blocks of XML is slow and resource intensive. Avoid using XML on all device platforms. Use JSON for significantly faster performance.

    You may find resources and documentation on the Y! Connected TV Developer page at: http://developer.yahoo.com/connectedtv/ 

    In addition, you may find documentation for the Platform objects at:
    http://developer.yahoo.com/connectedtv/devguide/CTV_DG_JavaScript_TV_API2.html

    Let us know if you have any other questions. Thanks!
