Nobody is using HTML5 either really.

By "all major browsers" you probably mean PC-alike desktop browsers rather than browsers for embedded devices etc which are arguably considerably more numerous and the use of which is on a sharp increase (as opposed to the PC-alikes which are pretty stagnant). I have a fairly new phone and its browser doesn't do HTML5. It doesn't matter that much though as I haven't yet found a website which either required an HTML5 browser or for which the use of HTML5 would add significantly to its usability or enjoyment.
