In spite of being just a markup language, there is a great rise in the demand of HTML5. Developers from different areas use this language to add and structure WEB 2.0 functionality to a websites or web app. As HTML5 was introduced, it was quickly adopted for its excellent support to video, visuals, interactivity and for delivering advanced browser based experience. Apart from this, it also offers the platform known as Canvas which is an excellent ground for building interactive apps for browsers users.
With this new HTML standard, designers have discovered a simple yet powerful way of coding applications for the web. They have also discovered that they can easily replace the div tag based code with semantic HTMl5 elements. It encourages the concept of code standardization. With standardization and increasing consistency, professional developers can easily understand the code of a website or web application and make changes accordingly.
Another best feature that is growing the demand of HTML5 is that this technology lets developers choose any sort of form with latest input types and implement it without any problem, with minimum time requirements. And as mentioned above, HTML5 can be used to build hybrid application too. The hybrid method of building an app is cost-effective as developers only need to build separate tiny front-end for separate platform.
With no doubt, HTML5 is an excellent web technology which is also suitable for a variety of mobile application developments. It is a perfect choice for those businesses which want to go online on multiple platforms in minimum app development budget.
