Incredibly, it has been more than 20 years since the first release of HTML, the HyperText Markup Language. In the early days of web development, HTML underwent a series of rapid evolutions from simple text to including images and adding CSS to format text. Then in 1997 the introduction of HTML4 hit the market and everything came to a stop. Sure, we saw the release of XHTML, but there was very little advancement in HTML as a language. Why the hold up? The reason is based on three major factors: computers were limited in what they could process, the connection to the Web was limited to the speed of a user’s dial-up modem, and the Web was busily being molded into a new medium. However, the Web has evolved. Today, computers are blinding fast with many of us running SmartPhones faster than desktop behemoths of just 6 years ago. Connection to the Web is now measured in megabytes per second, and the Web is now a standard we all rely on. It has become increasingly apparent that HTML4 just does not cut it for modern Web users. Bottom line: We need a new standard. A group called the Web Standards Project began developing HTML5 in 2007. The goal of the project is ambitious: Develop an HTML standard that is capable of running full applications in a web browser. HTML5 introduces a broad set of new technologies.
