Quick Explanation of What HTML5 Is

Since it’s such a hot topic in the browser world, then surely you’ve heard that modern browsers provide support for something called HTML5. Opera Software’s Opera, Mozilla’s Firefox, Google’s Chrome, and even Microsoft’s Internet Explorer (IE9, not previous versions) provide support for HTML5. But what is this HTML5 that everyone is talking about?

A brief and to the point explanation is that HTML5 is a core technology of the internet, originally proposed by Norwegian developer Opera Software. It is a coding language for structuring and presenting content. HTML5 is the coding language that runs behind the screens and lets you view multimedia content in your browser.

You could use a search engine to read more about HTML5 – or you could find a video that explains what HTML5 is. The truth of the matter is that there aren’t many online videos out there that do a proper job of explaining what HTML5 is. Topic Simple, company founded by Steve Newberry that specializes in creating “awesome online animated videos for businesses and startups,” found that not many videos out there do a good job of highlighting HTML5’s highlights – so the company decided that this just won’t do.

What Topic Simple did is it came up with a video that explains what HTML5 is; in a short amount of time, the video presents the highlights of HTML5. So if you want to understand what HTML5 is and what it does, and if you have a minute and a half at your disposal, make sure to check out the “What is HTML5” that Topic Simple released. The video is down at the bottom.

Opera Software’s Aleksander Aas had nothing but praise for the video. Even though HTML5 sounds a bit techy and hard to understand, Topic Simple’s video makes it easy to understand what HTML5 is, said Aleksander. It is a great tool for teaching not so techy friends about HTML5.
