A few months ago, we wrote a white paper on HTML5’s impact on the enterprise. The HTML5 white paper’s intent was to give businesses an overview of HTML5 and address the benefits and challenges associated with the markup language. However, since we released that white paper, the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) has made some major strides. In this post, I thought I’d provide an update: the W3C just recently announced that the specifications for HTML5 are feature complete and that developers now have a “stable target for implementation and planning.” Though, according to TechCrunch, “it’s worth noting that HTML5 still has to pass a few more steps to become a full W3C standard, but this is, for the most part, just a formality.” Final standardization of the language for broad interoperability and implementation is not expected to be complete until mid-2014.
