HTML5 is the latest and most advanced version of the code that is long awaited in the final standardization in order to be supported by the major search engines.

Today, almost no visual effect that does not support HTML5 code, so are able to create pages in HTML become limitless.The new standards also are reimbursed deficiencies and "bugs" from previous versions, and language became independent of reliance on other software such as Flash Player, Silverlight and Java. The new HTML5 syntax is able to enforce itself the functions instead perform these programs, enhanced and accompanied by a new version of CSS (CSS3).

How HTML5 "killed" the Flash Player?

At the time of its creation, HTML supported only a few functions. Progress has been constant, but the post videos via HTML has long remained a problem. Adobe Flash Player exercised this function in the HTML sites until recently, since HTML without problems supports all kinds of visual effects. It also marks the end of black squares on web pages and annoying required to take a plug-in for the sake of broadcast video installation which lasts just long enough for the visitors go to another site.

With these black areas in particular stood out devices from Apple, given that Steve Jobs had a clear and decisive stance to never connect Flash Player to its operating systems. In its own way, this attitude was a strong boost to the development of HTML5, which is favored and from Google itself, where the implementation of the latest versions of HTML to simple front page we see the various "doodle" logos. The increased availability of HTML pages for Google means a greater number of commercials that can be cashed.

The need for companies to make their sites fully switch to HTML platform is quite clear. In this way, they can independently carry out and control the traffic of your app, what it used be possible only by applications that are not fully owned by them. Functional HTML5 pages have led to many successful companies to fully extinguish their Android or an iPad application.

This development of things, in fact, corresponds to all users because in one code in a simple way can get all the necessary functionality, sophisticated video sequences and applications, advanced and original design solutions. Therefore, it is obvious why the most impatient and your site completely switched to HTML5 before he passed all the tests and was supported on all browsers.

So we welcome the day when YouTube completely switched to HTML5 player. One of its benefits is that it saves battery on mobile devices; a disadvantage, on whose regulation works, is the inability of copyright protection.
