HTML 5 Development

What the web wants.

Nearly every site you visit on the web is using HTML in some form. It is what gives structure to the content you see, presenting it in a readable fashion. HTML 5 is the latest and greatest version of the HTML programming language, meant for today’s web browsing.

HTML has been around a long time, and has gone through a number of different versions since its inception.

The HTML programming language was primarily designed to display static web content in a quick-ask way. It was also designed to be easily modified. HTML is the standard language for “front-end” development (the view of web pages and apps a user sees), and is often paired with other languages for the “back-end” development, such as: Javascript, PHP, and CSS (Cascading Style Sheets).

The new HTML 5 version presents a significant advancement in web technology, as it offers more flexibility than its predecessor, HTML 4.

1. Better integration of video and audio.

Video and audio are more easily integrated into HTML 5, important in an age of high video viewing online. HTML 5 can now display video and audio without the use of traditional outside plug-ins and APIs.

2. Cleaner code for easier changes.

The new version also supports cleaner code allowing for quicker and easier changes with less ongoing maintenance.

3. Flexibility in browsers and applications.

HTML 5 also allows you to store cookies across multiple browser windows. It may also be ported over and embedded into iPad or Android applications, making HTML 5 a usable technology for developing apps, including games.

HTML 5 is developed and endorsed by W3C (or the World Wide Web Consortium), with many possible uses:

  • Static Reader-Friendly Webpages
  • Simple Motion Applications
    • Image Sliders
    • Rotating Banners
    • Scrollable Content
  • Mobile-Friendly Web Pages
  • Games
  • Video Content (embedded)

HTML 5 provides the flexibility today’s web users are expecting, along with stronger and cleaner code.
