In my previous blog I had mentioned about HTML5 and its potential of being the web language of the future. In this blog I will share some of the experiments being done by many cloud computing companies to implement HTML5 technologies into their websites and applications.
Google has also announced a musical project with Arcade Fire that is aimed to show the power of HTML 5. The project is designed to show the web audience the fastest pace of web browsers with HTML5 technologies. Another popular Google Service ‘YouTube’ has already launched HTML 5 version for mobile phones.
Microsoft has also put eggs into the HTML5 basket with the release of its internet Explorer 9 browser. Development of the HTML5 web standard, and of mobile browsers like WebKit have enable users to play back embedded video content using the H.264 codec rather than Flash’s usual Sorensen or VP6 codecs which means that HTML5 video use has now become more usable.
However YouTube has said that HTML5 is still very far from becoming the new standard for long-form video streaming. But this switch away from Flash demonstrates that how quickly a technology of the present can become the technology of the past. By persistently waiting in the wings, genuinely open technologies stand a fair chance of eventually winning a measure of acceptance.
