Are you making the most of HTML5?

10/26/2012 | Internet hosting |

HTML5 isn't exactly a new technology for creating a high-quality web page. But if you still haven't looked into what it can offer to your website, you could be missing out on giving visitors an engaging experience that will convince them to come back time and time again.

It was recently noted by PC Advisor that the tool is "no longer a curiosity", as seen by the fact that full-fledged web apps are now commonplace. It was noted HTML5 makes it easy for developers to rewrite most software as a web page.

This is likely to be important as the expectations of users are changing. It isn't enough anymore for a website to simply present a straightforward page that looks similar to what someone might see on a piece of paper.

The publication stated websites are now expected to offer something interesting to individuals in order to justify their existence. Interactivity and media content are now key features that you should be offering in order to attract an audience and this is made much easier if you use HTML5

But if you're wondering what this can offer to you, PC Advisor highlighted several popular web apps that take advantage of HTML5 in order to deliver enhanced content for a variety of purposes.

One key product is Google Docs, with the bulk of web-based applications in this suite using basic HTML5 for their main features, allowing users to create tables, texts and figures and use the mouse to control the apps.

At the other end of the scale, HTML5 is also used to bring a browser-based version of popular mobile game Angry Birds to users of Google Chrome. It was observed that much of the code that was designed for Flash is being rewritten for HTML5, which promises to eliminate many of the glitches that could be caused by a conflict between the plugin and the browser.

These are just two examples of how companies have made HTML5 work for them to meet their needs. Whatever you're looking to use your web presence for, the chances are that a working knowledge of HTML5 will be a huge advantage in today's environment.
