HTML being in the development world since past two decades has become a household name for every programmer. As evolution is at its zenith, HTML5 has completely renewed the experience that HTML renders.
Now the web has received a whole new definition and empowers the browser to make use of data and visual perspective. Though HTML 5 is still in its growing phase yet, developers have utilized it very efficiently.
HTML5 render top notch functionalities on mobile devices
As per Mobile Web Metrics Report, HTML5 can render services on mobile devices. The report said that numerous mobile devices that access web supports its functionalities.
The Indexed Database API, AppCache, and Web storage allow the mobile app programmer to utilize the local storage of the device, and this helps the app to tackle the drops in the connection efficiently and not hamper the functioning of the app.
Offline property enables the browsers to cache the static web pages. Thus making it more reliable on HTTP response headers that are sent by HTML, multimedia as well as CSS that is needed to display a web page.
Now when everything which is required to be displayed on the screen is cached, then the speed of the web page becomes very less, however even if one item is not cached properly then the speed of the complete system goes down.
Therefore, in order to render incredible experience to your users you can make use of its offline support, for this you need to create a cache manifest file so as to specify the resource such as images, pages, and other files of offline application’s that are required to run the offline version of the app.
Talking about the technicalities, the manifest comprises of the comment which changes in tandem with the change in resources, that indicates the browser to refresh the cache of the system as well.
Top notch features it supports
Geo-location certainly falls among the most outstanding inventions of science. Some of the top features such as 2D animations, GeolocationAPI, WebStorage, CSS3 Selectors, and offline web application support, are referred regarding HTML5 across the top 15 mobile devices.
Top features that it partially supports
The concept of Extended user interaction, Misc. Element types as well as attributes, CSS3 in General, idea of extended form, along with extended video / audio support are another brilliant multimedia features that are partially supported by HTML5 features.
HTML5 has emerged as a leader when it comes to game development. This is quite a welcoming news for the game lovers as well as the game developers. Eventually, HTML5 is turning out to be a great platform for game development, which is feistily catching up with aggressive Flash-based games that run on browsers.
HTML5 enables the developers to create apps, games powered with accelerated graphics, render HD video and a lot more functionalities just by making use of native web code.
Sand Trap, Hexgl Entanglement, Galactic Inbox, And Bananabread are Some of the most addictive games built on HTML5. They are a quintessential example of the statement that the HTML5 is a great platform, and all you need is a great idea to make it function properly.
HTMl5 Android Wear apps
Google has unveiled Android Wear, and it has been quite some time, which is an Android OS that works on wearable devices such as Google Glass and smartwatches which are supposedly smart devices that can wear by people.
Now you might be wondering what capabilities do HTML5 has that can help the developers to render web services on these quite intriguing devices. After checking the devices, we can know that the Android wears do not come with WebView.
Now this has liberated the device as the system offers restricted environment and demand a lot of resources.
As the device is small so will be its execution speed, and this is the reason it a comprehensive web environment shows low performance. But when it comes to HTML5, the smartwatch was running smooth giving optimized Canavas+ for Android wear. This encouraged the developers as Canvas+ render amazing results.
HTML 5 when combined with Augmented Reality
Though it is a new kid on the block, augmented reality has certainly created a buzz in the web space because of the usability it renders. Of late I came across an incredible HTML5 Augment reality flood stimulation project for Iowa Flood Center.
This means it has started, and people who are designing apps for HTML5 can also incorporate up and coming functionalities such as augmented reality.
In this project, the developer used web-based Augmented reality to stream a webcam video to be rendered in a web browser, capture marker images that are encoded and 3D models on them. The project using HTML5 technologies for interacting with the web browser in real time and cover marker images.
HTML5 certainly has a very gleaming future and certainly has the power not just to match pace with the changing technology but to change the change the technology.
