HTML5 isn’t your typical web's core language specification. It actually details how the HTML should be formatted and used in order to deliver images, text, web apps, search engines and more. This is a huge revision to web developers as this is the main component to how the web is put together. While this may mean little to us at the moment, it impacts the way we stream things via the internet immensely. When more browsers and developers support HTML5's audio, video, and interaction standards, the idea of the web as the universal app store—for smartphones, for desktops and laptops, Windows, Mac, and Linux—gets closer to reality.The benefits:
- Offline storage: Kind of like "Super Cookies," but with much more space to store data, like email.
- Canvas drawing: Sites can mark off a space on a page where interactive pictures, charts and graphs, game components, can be drawn directly—no Flash or other plug-ins required.
- Native video and audio streaming support: Sites like YouTube and Pandora could one day skip Flash entirely to bring you streaming audio and video
It can also provide: Geolocation, Smarter forms, and Web application focus.
As this becomes reality, we can assist with your linguistic localization and technology needs.
