Over the last year or so HTML 5 has grown from being just another buzz word into a path breaking, revolutionary technology that it was initially expected to be. Visionary developers are putting their money on HTML 5 and are thus paving the path for creating visually stunning, highly optimized apps for web interactivity. Ever since IE 9 and Firefox 4 along with Google Chrome and Safari 5 have embraced support for HTML 5 users have been witness to some top quality applications.

A case in point is Google Chrome’s Web Store, which is fast becoming a one stop destination to get some highly productive and useful apps. Even though it has been around for a while now HTML 5 has recently started gathering momentum. Let’s examine why HTML 5 is hot property right now-

  • According to the design principle’s rolled out in the WHATWG specifications, the most important aspects of HTML 5 that is making it endearing to the developers and the users at the same time are – Compatibility, Interoperability, Universal access, Offline storage, Device access and CSS3.
  • HTML 5 specification is based on a one-line priority order – “the user is king”, which means users are valued over authors of applications, over implementers, and even over specifiers, that just makes HTML 5 so much more appealing to everyone involved.
  • Some awesome apps and services like TweetDeck and Fonts.com have further enhanced HTML 5’s reputation and what all it is capable of.
  • Paul Irish and Divya Manian’s HTML 5 Boilerplate template has been creating unprecedented buzz and has grown exponentially in both scope and support. Ever since HTML 5 Boilerplate 1.0 was released on March 21 2011 it has provided support for Google App Engine and Node JS as well as the old war horses Apache, IIS and Nginx.
  • Awesome new features such as Canvas and an improved SVG support make it a compelling reason for developers to try it out.
  • Apple’s late CEO Steve Jobs’ letter “Thoughts on Flash” was published in April 2010. In the letter Jobs had emphasized on the fact that Adobe’s monopoly should end, and Flash would be dead in the years to come simply because it was not an open system, and HTML 5, CSS and JavaScript which are essentially open standards would bring an end to the over reliance on Adobe Flash for viewing quality multimedia content on devices of all kinds, shapes and forms including smart phones and Tablets.

So from where we see it, there is reason enough that HTML 5 is here to stay and the amount of potential and exposure that it offers to developers, it just can’t be ignored, the fact is that in the years to come, you can not escape HTML 5, not if you are a developer, not even if you are an unassuming end user using your high end browsers of the future to play games which 10 years ago required you to have a heavy-on-pocket graphics card, why? Because your browsers are now powered by HTML 5.
