HTML5 IS A NEW PROGRAMMING TREND
Before the worldwide consortium W3C began developing the language HTML5, the range of options for building the structure of the site was rather poor and limited. For example, if it was necessary to add video, it was necessary to use proprietary components (Flash and others).
The set of available markup tags was rather small. The structure was unreadable and complicated. The task of maintaining and developing resources became extremely difficult. Solving these problems and extending the functionality of web pages is the primary goal of the new HTML5 technology, which all modern browsers already support.
What is HTML5?
The hypertext language HTML5 is a new specification for the markup of modern web documents, which became officially available to all developers only in 2014. Over time, most modern websites began to use it. There are several reasons for this.
With the advent of the hypertext language HTML5, the situation in the world of web development has changed dramatically: all the shortcomings of the previous version of the specification have been eliminated. There is a large number of new tags that help to more accurately describe the elements of the page.
Also in HTML5 were built in capabilities to embed multimedia objects, allowing complete abandonment of Flash and other similar technologies. Along with this disappeared and the problems associated with them: low performance, code vulnerability, etc.
Using only HTML5, today you can create very complex sites with multimedia and interactive elements, without the use of third-party solutions. The language has built-in components for video playback, drawing graphics, form validation and more. In fact, it combines some elements of CSS, XHTML, DHTML and Ajax.
At the same time, in order to extend the functionality without making HTML5 too complicated, many old tags are no longer supported, as they are no longer needed. At the same time, learning the basics of the technology has become even easier. New tags received readable and understandable names.
This is all relevant to complex sites. In this regard, the question may arise: will the new HTML5 standard be more effective for a small project with static textual and graphic content? Are there any advantages over the previous version of the language in this case?
The answer is yes. The new standard allows:
site development and maintenance is much more affordable;
The search engine promotion of the site becomes easier;
embed multimedia components in static pages;
increase the security of the site visitors.
The very fact that the HTML5 standard is used does not make the site inaccessible to visitors using older versions of browsers that do not support the technology. They just will not be able to access some components, although this can be bypassed by ordering the development of professionals.
