What is HTML5?

HTML5 is the latest version of the HTML standard, and it introduces new elements and attributes that provide more options for creating and organizing content on the web. Here are some of the key features of HTML5:

  • New structural elements: HTML5 introduces new elements, such as <header>, <footer>, <nav>, and <article>, which make it easier to organize the content of a webpage into sections.
  • Multimedia support: HTML5 provides new elements, such as <audio> and <video>, that allow you to embed audio and video files directly into a webpage, without the need for third-party plugins.
  • Improved forms: HTML5 introduces new form elements, such as <datalist> and <output>, that make it easier to create user-friendly and interactive forms.
  • Offline storage: HTML5 allows web applications to store data locally on the user’s device, so that the application can be used even when the user is offline.
  • Drag and drop: HTML5 allows users to drag and drop elements on a webpage, making it easier to interact with web content.
  • Canvas: HTML5 introduces a new element, <canvas>, which allows you to draw graphics and animations directly on a webpage using JavaScript.
