How HTML5 Change the Website Design World
HTML5 and CSS3 make a great changes in the website design and development world. The HTML5 introduced many new tags which can change your opener about using old technology for web development. Now we are starting show more information why you should use HTML5 for web and mobile application development.
New Elements for Page Structure
By page structure, we mean the top-level items: the header, the footer, the navigation, the main content, and so on. HTML5 launch many useful new tags which will make the website more user-friendly. Below are the top used HTML5 IDs and Class information.
HTML Doc Type
Now the web page DOCTYPE statement is very simple for a user. It comes from the Standard Generalized Markup Language (SGML) that was used to define previous versions of HTML in terms of the language syntax. The DOCTYPE is basically used for two major proposed
- It’s used by HTML validation services to determine which version the document uses
- All browsers use the DOCTYPE to determine which rendering mode to use

HTML5 support semantics and ARIA which will make the web application more accessible for any platform. The new HTML headings like <header>, <footer>, <nav>, <section>, <aside>, etc. allow screen readers to easily access content. Before HTML5, the screen readers had no way to determine what a given <div> was even if you assigned it an ID or Class. Another technology which makes the HTML5 more accessible is ARIA, it is a standard developed by the W3C in response to the generally poor accessibility of early AJAX-based web applications.
Video and Audio Support
TheHTML4 required Adobe Flash Player and other 3rd Party player to play videos on web pages. HTML5 breakout this boundary. The new HTML5 <video> and <audio> tags provides facility direct add video on your webpage from 3rd party source. You can add any video to the website by adding a simple code <video src=”URL” width=”640px” height=”380px” autoplay/> where you want to show the video player.

It is better than cookies, it provides a facility to user use same data between different Windows version and it has better security and performance and data will persist even after the browser is closed.
HTML5 provide a Canvas to develop an interactive application. The <canvas> HTML5 tag that allows you to do most (if not more) interactive and animated possibilities than the previous rich internet application platforms like Flash. Beyond <canvas>, HTML5 also comes with a slew of great APIs that allow you to build a better user experience and a beefier, more dynamic web application — here’s a quick list of native APIs:
- Drag and Drop (DnD)
- Offline storage database
- Browser history management
- Document editing

Mobile browsers have fully adopted HTML5 so creating mobile ready projects is as easy as designing and constructing for their smaller touch screen displays — hence the popularity of Responsive Design. There are some great meta tags that also allow you to optimize for mobile:
- Viewport: allows you to define viewport widths and zoom settings
- Full-screen browsing: IOS specific values that allow Apple devices to display in full-screen mode
