WTF is HTML5 and Why Should we Care?

June 10, 2010 • By

Everyone has heard of HTML (HyperText Markup Language), its a relatively easy to learn language that allows for the quick creation of web sites. That description is clear, to the point and no one will ever dispute it.

But then, along comes HTML5 to rock the boat a little bit and that description is both vague and very far from the point. So, what is HTML5? HTML5 is HTMLs latest major revision, with a lot of added features and exciting attributes.

To most, understanding all of these new features may be a little bit overwhelming and at first glance may seem a little bit unnecessary, but when you dig deeper into it a new and exciting world will open up to you, not just as developers and designers but for users as well.

Recently, focus.com published an infographic that has been designed for the uninitiated to get a better understanding of HTML5 and to be a quick reference for developers, you can view the infographic below (click the image for the source and to view it full-size).
