HTML 5 is New Web Development

 
If you are a frequent visitor of C# Corner or any other website that covers the latest technologies, I am sure you have heard of HTML 5. You may also want to check out HTML 5 on C# Corner. HTML 5 will probably be one of the widely spread and used technologies coming in next few years.
 
So if you are a Web developer, it is time for you to start looking into HTML 5.
 
So what makes HTML 5 so important today?
 
You must be wondering why HTML 5 is so important today.  So, let's take a step back and think about what technologies have been driving the Web in the past few years. If you look back, you will find all social networking websites are loaded with flashy and dynamic features starting from YouTube to Google+ and Facebook, MySpace, Netflix and Twitter in between. It's all about displaying photos, streaming videos, watching movies, and doing more dynamic stuff on the web.
 
This is where products like Adobe Flash, Microsoft Silverlight and JQuery became popular and the reason was very obvious. HTML did not have support for these features. This is where HTML 5 steps in. So, what is new in HTML 5?
 
HTML 5 is now loaded with embedded video and audio support, provides better graphics rendering, client-side data storage, interactive documents and even now we can run multiple threads on client-side.
 
So, why do I think HTML 5 is going to be big?
 
Every Web technology company including Microsoft, Google, Apple and IBM is geared toward supporting HTML 5. Every new version of the browser now will support HTML 5 from Internet Explorer 9 to Firefox and Chrome.
 
Microsoft's IE 9 supports HTML 5.  Microsoft's Silverlight was the move to support Flash-like client-side applications for Microsoft developers.
 
Top tech giant Apple does not support Flash on its most popular devices iPhone, iPad, and iPod. But every new Apple mobile device and every new Mac supports web standards including HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript.  HTML 5 is definitely going to create some challenges for Adobe Flash.
 
HTML 5 is definitely impacting both Silverlight and Flash. If I am a Web developer and could do everything in HTML 5, for me, it does not make sense to use Flash or Silverlight.
