HTML5 offers powerful flexibility, interactivity and mobile capability.
Here at Graphic D-Signs, we take pride in staying up-to-date: not only with design, but also with development. For some time now, Apple has been pushing new web elements in the HTML5 standard across their devices and platforms. When you sign up for a website with Graphic D-Signs, we make sure your new investment functions across all iOS devices and Android mobile platforms, as well as your computers. With HTML5, we have the ability to stream audio and video without using older technologies such as Flash. Utilizing these new technologies ensures your site’s functionality well into the future. As we advance in technology, however, we don’t shut the door on older browsers like Internet Explorer 7-8. Instead, we make sure that these browsers still support your website features—so you don’t leave customers in the dark.
Here are some key features of the new HTML5 standard:
- Video. The new HTML 5 video element makes it just as easy to embed video elements on a web page as it has been to embed images using HTML4 and older HTML standards. Again, there are no plugins or third-party software attachments required. HTML5 video also includes timed playback and other great new features.
- Geolocation. The new HTML5 geolocation APIs make location, whether generated via GPS or other methods, directly available to any HTML5-compatible browser-based application. A good example is Google Latitude for the iPhone. This is a pure web app rather than a platform-dependent iPhone application.
- Forms. HTML5 offers enhanced forms with improvements to text inputs, search boxes and other fields. It also provides improved controls for validating data, focusing, interacting with other page elements, etc.
At Graphic D-Signs, we’re pushing technology to its limits—and elevating your website to state-of-the-art. To learn more about the benefits of HTML 5, contact our team of technology experts today. We look forward to partnering with you!
