5 reasons why HTML5 will be the Next Big Thing in mobile space

HTML 5, the next revision of the Hypertext Markup Language (HTML), the standard programming
language for describing the contents and appearance of Web pages, is a new web technology that is
quickly changing the face of the mobile market. The new
technology is getting due attention from the
developers and businesses due to the fact that it supports cross
platform application development,
offers portability, scalable applications for browsers, and is more cost
effective and less labor

building native apps for Android, iOS and Windows Phone.

More importantly, HTML5 offers a good alternative to the very idea of an App Store in its current form.
It allows developers and publishers to avoid paying Apple and Google 30 per cent commission f
or selling
apps through their app stores

thus bringing a fundamental shift about how we load new software onto
our mobile devices. Apple co
founder Steve Jobs was among the first few who said that non
open standards such as HTML5 will rule th
e mobile platform

enabling modern browsers to do the
same functions as Flash. As you already know, Flash was never implemented on the iOS platform. In fact,
Jobs was right, as in an abrupt U
turn in its mobile software strategy, Adobe had announced to ce
developing its Flash Player plug
in for mobile browsers. Adobe even acknowledged HTML5 as the

solution for creating and deploying content in the browser across mobile platforms


HTML5 is now universally supported on major mobile devices, in s
ome cases exclusively. We are
excited about this, and will continue our work with key players in the HTML community, including
Google, Apple, Microsoft and RIM, to drive HTML5 innovation they can use to advance their mobile

provides you the capability to re
package Web apps as native apps on the various mobile platforms. In
this blogpost, we are talking about five top r
easons that show that HTML5 has got great potential.

s the future:

Analysts expect 2012 to be the year of HTML5 with a growing list of companies starting to adopt and
develop in HTML5. Contemporary Analysis, on behalf of appendTo, a JavaScript and

HTML5 consulting
company, recently conducted an online survey in which it found out that 84 per cent of developers are
planning to implement HTML 5 in projects within the next six months. One such recent example is
Microsoft putting is energies into HTML5

in Windows 8. Microsoft has followed in Apple

s footsteps and
has made the coming


version of Windows 8 destined for deployment in smartphones and
media tablets with a version of Internet Explorer 10 that will no longer feature browser plug
ins, th
relying mostly on HTML5. Dean Hachamovitch, the head of Microsoft

s Windows Internet Explorer team,
said, the adoption of HTML5 is to provide consumers most out of touch
first browsing. Running a plug
free Metro version of IE10 will further improve s
ecurity, reliability and privacy for consumers.
