HTML 5 and the future of the web
Ever since Apple released the iPad product earlier this year HTML 5 has been thrust into the limelight as the "next big thing" for the web. Essentially it is an expansion of HTML 4, the current markup language, that adds features such as embedded video playback, drag and drop, support for vector graphics (SVG), and much more. So will HTML 5 be the next big thing?
HTML 5 should make it easier for your average developer to integrate video and advanced features but we won't see an impact for a while. If you hire a professional development company there is no reason you can't offer a highly interactive site with rich media content today, using standard tools supported on a wide variety of platforms.
