If you wish to connect your business with HTML5, please be patient and ready to spend a certain time on it as the result to be obtained is worth waiting and working without cease. It is also reasonable to find a partner which can be surely relied on and which is ready to work with HTML5 and without much trouble change his point of view and business methods. Below you can find several advantages which HTML5 offers for creating business:

  • HTML5 is being constantly developed and updated, is getting more and more convenient and well-thought-out.
  • the same code can be developed once and then be used on several platforms that leads to less support and lower cost as a result. HTML is very common among IT-developers and designers community thus it is easier for them to cooperate with each other while working on the same project, that makes the whole process more convenient and fast.
  • the customers even being offline, now can reload a previously visited webpage as HTML5 provides the ability to store the data in the SQL database and not by cookies usage as earlier.

In future with HTML5 web applications development, the mobile access to business society will improve greatly due to the fact that all devices based on HTML5 compatible browser will have the same potential to accumulate, compare and use data.

A fly in the ointment

Despite the fact that there is no such a great variety of HTML5 applications, they are confidently spreading over the Android and Apple applications market. This area is comparably new so there is a possibility to easily occupy a certain position on it, though the development and sales can require big investments and hard-working as it is necessary to explore the unknown ground and establish business there.

Currently, businessman are in reflection whether to be or not the HTML5 prospectors as not all the promises were completed and there are certain underwater stones connected with it. For instance, the issue with compatibility with Internet Explorer and the lack of HTML5 applications adopters are still acute points to be resolved. Taking into consideration that IE is quite popular browser, it is hardly reasonable to use a language that is not fully compatible with it. Internet Explorer is not compatible with all the features HTML5 offers, only audio and video tags are supported for the present time. Thus, despite the wonderful site you may have, you will definitely loose those clients who do not want to change the browser they’re using. Nevertheless, HTML5 is progressing very fast especially in mobile sphere. Although there is certain issue connected with this fact, a lot of money can be spent on development that can result in making the code rather cumbersome and requiring redevelopment later.
