HTML5 is a significant improvement on the HTML standard that drives a lot of the web. It allows you to:

  • Describe the content better, thanks to semantic elements
  • Have more options in presentation like improved 2D and 3D effects
  • Support video and audio playback without third party plug-ins
  • Play with a number of layout and styling options, thanks to CSS3 and jQuery
  • Store data both on the device and server to improve performance
  • Use the same codebase to develop device independent websites and apps

The HTML5 standard is supported by all the latest versions of the dominant desktop and mobile browsers.
