HTML5 the next major revision of HTML and includes a plethora of open standards like SVG, Canvas, Video/Audio tags, WebWorkers, App Caching, and Web Sockets. So, HTML5 is a big step in enabling browsers to power robust, local, interactive applications rather than ‘websites’. HTML5 actually strives to be something very different.  It aims to be more of an application development platform, which includes not only laying out text and images, but also playing video and audio, interactive 2d and 3d graphics, storing data in the application, dealing with online and offline access to data, and real-time networking protocols for exchanging data as it happens. HTML 5 is a combination of new JavaScript API’s and css. HTML5 has many new syntactical features. HTML5 comes with <audio>, <video> and <canvas> elements as well as integration of SVG content. With these new elements it will be very easy to integrate multimedia and graphical content to web without using flash and third party plugins.

Some advantages of HTML5::

  • HTML5 will enable web designers to use cleaner, neater code. One can remove div tags and replace them with semantic HTML5 elements.
  • HTML5 enables designer to use fancier forms. There will be different type of inputs, search and different fields for different purpose.
  • As websites will adopt the new HTML5 elements one will see more consistency in terms of HTML used to code a web page on one site compared to another. This will make it much easier for designers and developers to immediately understand how a web page is created.
  • HTML5 has an inbuilt capability to play audio and video and so we can bid goodbye to those plugin tags.
  • HTML5 offers an offline application cache facility which will load the page the user has visited even if the user is temporarily offline. This feature will help the files to load much faster and reduces load on server.
