HTML 5 over HTML


Hyper Text Markup Language, better known simply as HTML, is the basic language to make web pages. It is a form of programming language that is used to make web pages on the internet viewable. We can say that ,it is because of HTML that web pages are made a bit interesting to look at. HTML5 is the version of HTML,HTML5 is an upgrade to that of HTML and is in fact way better and easy to use.
Here,I will list some key points to why is HTML5 better than HTML.
You don’t have to worry about the syntax. Unlike HTML, HTML5 will still display your code even if the code is not entirely in syntax, well at least something. Also it is way more practical to use and easy to implement somewhere than HTML
You can not use advanced elements such as intelligent form fields, performance optimized media in HTML and this is where you have to use JavaScript entirely for these features. Whereas, in HTML 5 it is an integral part of the specifications.
Your Performance will be bad. It takes a lot of time to prepare the DOM for an HTML page where in HTML5 this isn’t much big of a task.
There are different ways to figure out where you are if you need to access or find your own location—, your wireless network connection, which cell tower your phone is talking to, or dedicated GPS hardware that calculates latitude and longitude from information sent by satellites in the sky or your IP address. HTML5 geolocation APIs come too handy in here and make the location, whether generated via IP address or other methods, directly available to any HTML-5 compatible browser application.
In HTML you SEO isn’t good. Like literally there is no specific search result for your quest. HTML5 makes search to be more precise. It is not a very well known point but this is how it is.
In HTML you can not use interactive elements such as Drag-able functionalities, Advanced Key strocks identification, Drop-able (This is actually a JavaScript thing but is made easier by HTML5) .
As every browser have some or the other kind of caching mechanism where you believe that pressing the back button or forward button will take you to the previous page despite no internet connection anymore, but what happens is that the browser shows that you cannot go to it without internet and it will only open after you have internet connection connected to your device. HTML 5, thankfully, provides a smarter solution. While building the site, the developer can specify the files that the browser should cache which makes it easy for the browser to store important . So, even if you refresh the page when you are offline, the page will still load correctly.
