Website Applications

HTML5 is revolutionizing the web allowing for the creation of web applications with interactivity of native client applications. This all made possible through the tight coupling of HTML5, Cascading Style Sheets (CSS3) and JavaScript. HTML5 when combined with the application cache feature allows web apps that work offline, much like how a native client operates. Offline mode allows the application to also access local hardware like cameras and GPS sensors historically prohibited from web based applications.

Mobile Platform Applications

Native applications specifically compiled and optimized for a mobile platform continue to be the recommended approach for graphic and computationally intensive applications.

The Current & Future Standards of HTML5

According to the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), an international community that develops open standards to ensure the long-term growth of the Web, HTML5 has come a long way and is now supported by most modern browsers. Moving toward the future, ongoing effort by the W3C will be to address interoperability not just across browsers, but also across devices as well as tackle browser fragmentation and testing. W3C intends to make every browser on the market HTML5-compatible by 2014.
