  1. If you have not heard of HTML 5, then you are still in the HTML 4 era. Sooner or later however you will likely come face to face with the power of HTML 5 if you are a regular surfer. According to an excerpt from Wired “HTML5 specification is the brainchild of W3C. Opera, Apple, Mozilla and Microsoft are working together to transform the web from a largely static repository for text and images (the web of today) into a platform for interoperable applications far more inviting and easy to develop for than current standards allow.

    The web is ever evolving and as new innovative websites are created, HTML 4 has been pushed to the edge and limited to allow developers from providing enhanced functionality. The adoption of HTML 5 will resolve most of these problems with its enhanced support for multimedia, structure and application programming interfaces (APIs).

    When it comes to structure, new elements have been introduced into HTML 5. These new elements will allow users to, for example, navigate the pages more easily by skipping navigation sections and jumping into other content without the need for links.

    Video publishing is now big on the web. However, HTML 4 lacks the necessary embed and control features to make multimedia more dynamic and interactive. Most sites are therefore forced to use flash and other plug-ins to provide these functionalities. With HTML 5 however, it is now possible to use inbuilt elements to provide this functionality in browsers. The fact that HTML 5 is getting support from the top industry players is proof that it will define how the web is going to evolve in the future.
