HTML5 is the future of web apps

March 12th, 2013

Are you looking for a technology that supports the latest multimedia and animations in your website? Are you expecting something more what usually the Adobe Flash does? Then, HTML 5, a fifth revision of the HTML standard recommended by W3C, is there to satisfy all your multimedia needs and expectations on the Web.

HTML5 is actually magical in reference to its animation, canvas illustration and video capabilities that toil really well and exotic. It improves the capability of the markup available for documents and extends its ability. It also establishes application programming interfaces or APIs that include specifications for object classes, data structures, variables and routines for difficult applications.

HTML5 provides you powerful and cross-platform tools for their mobile and web applications. Therefore, almost all developers prefer HTML5 for their cross-platform development. HTML5 has a detailed processing model that encourages many interoperable implementations. It establishes attributes and elements that reflect distinctive usage on modern websites.

To create more user-friendly web apps, HTML5 offers a large variety of APIs that bring most obvious benefits for the future of apps. HTML5 has many semantic features that allow you to add graphical content or multimedia on the web, without having to resort to propriety plug-ins and APIs.

Nowadays, you can see most of the Internet users using their Smartphones and tablets for browsing activities. Thus, the features of HTML5 are carefully built by having the consideration that it runs properly on low-powered devices. Therefore, developers use HTML5 to build applications that can be used on iPads, iPhones, Windows phone, Android mobiles and tablets. As per the report given by the ABI Research, around 109 million mobile devices are already having HTML5 and it is expected to become 2.1 billion by the year 2016.

The survey also shows that 47 percent of web developers considered delivering performance to be their greatest challenge whereas 12 percent say they are more concerned by the challenge of separating HTML5 code from JavaScript. But, the survey taken in 2013 clearly shows that 90% of developers prefer HTML5 for website development and only 15% said they would prefer to use a native-only approach.

Even though it seems like the buzz about HTML5 is already available, we are just at the beginning stage, said the latest research. The W3C has the goal to attain broad interoperability for the complete HTML5 specification by the year 2014.
