The Web is ever changing. What was once a place where documents and information could be accessed has turned into a place where users can communicate verbally, visually and virtually, where users can play interactive games, and where users can stream music, movies and television shows. To keep up with these advanced features and capabilities, the technologies for developing Web applications have to constantly change as well. In today’s connected world, developers have been increasingly turning their attention to HTML5.
In the past, HTML5 has been viewed as the ugly stepchild of Web technologies. But with recent advancements from the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), HTML5 is quickly becoming the preferred solution for developing for the Web.
“Over the last probably six months, HTML5 has really kind of risen to become a reliable enterprise-class software that large companies and small companies can actually count on,” said Art Landro, CEO of Sencha.
