The term “HTML5” might sound familiar to but many people still don’t know what exactly stands behind this peculiar word.
HTML5 is the latest version of the HTML programming language. HTML uses a standard code to create online content. This is what it looks like:
It was declared as the successor of HTML4 already in 2007, but became a pop icon in April 2010, when Steve Jobs addressed Apple users in an open letter and announced that the future of the web is in HTML5. Jobs’ statement intensified the dispute between Apple and Adobe, and it also established HTML5 as the hottest new technology in town.
HTML5’s increasing popularity became clear as more and more platforms and browsers became compatible with the latest standard. A fast growing number of websites, videos, and applications today are created with HTML5.
In fact, HTML5 has become such a buzz word, that its logo became the object of numerous parodies and take offs. Here are a couple of nice ones.
But what’s all the fuss about?
It’s important to mention that HTML5 is still undergoing developments and changes. Given the impressing capabilities of this standard, it’s safe to say that anything coming from HTML5’s direction can have a great impact on the entire web.
