HTML 5

Have you started using HTML 5 on your websites? I have been aware of HTML 5 tags and features since months but haven't really used them in my coding. I guess old habits die hard and it will take some time before I use HTML 5 on my webpages. What about you? Have you started using HTML 5 and how is your experience with it?

There are plenty of new tags in HTML, I'm not sure about changes in the old tags though. Here is a list of new HTML 5 tags from the W3Schools site

Looking at these elements, I think it requires a completely new approach to coding in HTML. Don't you think so?

I was looking over html5 the other day not used it yet but plan on using it in future plus you have css3 around on top.

 

Yes, CSS3 is quite new as well. I think for web designers and website owners it will take a while to get used to them as it is still new and it won't come into use that quickly.

HTML 5 will be the main web standard for years to come. It is a work in progress and undoubtlly will reflect new web technologies as they widespread. Mobile computing idevelopers has already embraced HTML 5 as one of their main development tools.

I have seen several demos about the features found in HTML5 especially the animation. I'd like the chance to use them in my website one of these days, but right now, I'm still neck deep in PHP code so it will have to wait a few months.

I have tried it a little bit but I rarely do front-end so I don't know that much yet. I think HTML5, JQuery and CSS3 are gonna be game changers for sure though. They will kill off flash and flex in a few years. The stuff that people are doing already with this technology is just amazing. I'm really excited for the future of the web with this stack!

I haven't really looked at HTML5 yet but it's on my to-do list for sure. :P I'm hoping to bring future websites up using it that's for sure. It may take me awhile to learn all the new elements and such though as my time for reading stuff and learning new languages now is pretty limited but I will do my best to learn at least a little bit of HTML5 before the end of the year. :D

I shifted over to HTML5 as soon as I could. If nothing else the simplicity of declaring the version made me jump. However, I have been a fan of the Semantic Web idea since about 2002 when W3C first started talking about it and HTML5 is well targeted towards the Semantic Web. Many of the new tags are specifically designed for working with the Semantic Web and I love it. 

 

The only thing I don't like about the shift is the deprecation of tables and switching to CSS for table formatting. I need tables a lot for my personal work and I don't think that list does anywhere what tables can do.

Definitely going to be the future of the web, without a doubt. I haven't began the process of switching over yet but it's near the top on my priority list purely because I've seen what's possible with it and I'm amazed. I can't wait to free up some spare time to start researching more and learning and playing with the code. I have no doubt that in two years it'll be the commonly used language of internet programming and it will stay that way for many years much as the current generation of programmers have grown to love HTML.

I have started using some aspects of HTML 5 on my website. They're really useful and fun to use! It's just made life so much easier with all the new features it's brought. Plus, it's made my JavaScript life a lot easier with the introduction of HTML 5 canvas's.
All in all, I think we should all use the new features HTML 5 has brought to us. After all, it's all for the best!
