HTML5 is a language for structuring and presenting content for the World Wide Web, a core technology of the Internet. It is the latest revision of the HTML standard (originally created in 1990) and currently remains under development. Its core aims have been to improve the language with support for the latest multimedia while keeping it easily readable by humans and consistently understood by computers and devices (web browsers, parsers etc.).
HTML5 is widely regarded as the next standard for website design and creation. It will be the de facto language that browsers, such as Internet Explorer, Firefox and Safari, will use to render Websites. This transition to HTML5 will require many changes for Web designers, though, and some aren't sure HTML5 is the future.
One of the main benefits of HTML5 will be ease of use. Currently, many types of media, the most obvious example being video, can't be handled in regular HTML coding. Instead, third-party software, like Adobe Flash and Microsoft Silverlight, must be installed to play videos. Without Flash, users can't watch YouTube videos, or 70 percent of other videos on the Internet, according to Adobe.
