HTML5 Is Here!

Sep 8, 2010 8:01:01 AM

HTML5 is rapidly evolving to tackle real and practical improvements to the web’s platform. The dedicated minds that have designed HTML5 to codify de facto standards, standards that have been in use for years, are laying the groundwork for next-generation web applications. Making use of HTML5’s features means a more engaging and responsive web experience for users, and far less coding for programmers.

Peter Lubbers, co-author of Apress’s latest book "Pro HTML5 Programming: Powerful APIs for Richer Internet Application Development" and Director of Documentation and Training at Kaazing, explains the latest about HTML5. “HTML5 is brand new and ready for anyone looking for an extra edge to make web applications stand above the rest. With this major revision of HTML, web applications take on a power, ease, scalability, and responsiveness like never before.” HTML5 is here and available in the most recent versions of modern browsers.
