HTML5 has been the hottest buzzword in the Internet industry for the past few years. While HTML5- compatible smartphones have started to sell in market, the adoption of HTML5 is expected to boom over one billion this year. This latest technology has various embedded features that help you out with the presentation and structuring of the content. Also, it contains numerous syntax features and combines several technologies that are designed for web applications.


However, every technology has its own pros and cons and HTML5 too is not spared of it. Following outlines some of the major pros and cons that come attached with HTML5.



Increased Offline Storage of Information

With HTML5, you get a host of features that provide increased capacity of information to store offline. With more offline storage, you can store more than just cookies and cache. This is a great advantage for web developers and especially for mobile app developers. When the internet connection is down, some of the important applications will still continue to work.


Adding Videos and Images

It is not that adding videos and images to webpages was not possible before the advent of HTML5. It is just that the process of adding them has become quite easy and uncomplicated now. Also, it is now possible to view the images and videos through other browsers and mobile applications like never before.


Increased Stability

Most of the features present in HTML5 can be used practically anywhere as they are constant and does not require additional use of modern browser plug-ins. After a few months, creating CSS animations will be possible with HTML and CSS instead of Silverlight or Flash.


Unified Web Presence

With HTML5, it is now possible to create one unified web presence that will work across all devices, mobile, or non-mobile devices. This would help you greatly in saving costs of your company as you are no longer required to spend money on creating multiple sites or applications, or hiring additional programmers for task of mobile applications. This is also incredibly helpful for SEO experts, as all back-links can now be directed to one place.



Non-Supportive for Outdated Browser Versions

The problem with HTML5 lies in the fact that it does not support any outdated browser versions. For instance, IE8 does not relate with this technology. Although Internet Explorer does not cater to majority of the web users around the globe, but still, the problem persists.


Difficult to Discover

The other drawback is with the HTML5 applications and that is that they can be difficult to find as there is no app store for them like there are for Android and iOS applications. Though there have been attempts to create HTML5 app stores by Google Chrome and Facebook, but these are limited to their particular environments.



Since HTML has come into being, from a consortium, it will take some time to develop completely and come on its own. Even though HTML5 might not yet be the perfect solution, but its numerous advantages that make the complete process of designing quicker and easier cannot be ignored. Take all the considerations in mind and choose for yourself before moving ahead with the design process.
