    Web Designers: Are we ready to design websites with HTML5 Yet?

    A lot of web designers are reluctant to go to HTML 5, because it is much different than HTML4 and it does not work in all browsers, but everyone is pushing it. Are we ready?

    That is a great question. As with most things in technology it can take time for the new to migrate out there. And you are right, we are not ready. But those who do will be hobby websites but not business. It takes the business side time to catch up so they don't miss a customer or sale. Make sense?

      Yeah, thanks, Peter. I just wrote a new hub on HTML 5 and actually recorded a video hub for it, so check out my hub for that, but I think we should more forward with HTML 5. The faster we embrace it, the faster we can progress with it.

    I am eager to learn more and start putting it into practice, it's just a matter of taking time to sit down and really dig in.

      Thanks, Christin. There is a lot to go on HTML 5 and I think the objective is great. I am putting up some video hubs on it as well.

    I use a very basic html5 on my website and I enjoyed your video tutorial on html5.  The thing I do not like about html5 is the canvas.  To make it really interactive you have to know iQuery and JavaScript.  I am glad you ask this question.

    It is a transition that will just slowly happen, it's not like much has been taken away, its more so the case that features have been added. Embedding video and song directly for example, mapping vector images etc... These are all features that make web design a little smarter.

    Some of these features are not optimised for each browser, however there is a way around it to make them function in most. The same as when in CSS we pick a font, then comma separate following fonts for any browsers that do not display the first choice. HTML 5 features work similarly.

    From looking over the new standards it doesn't seem very different at all, an easier doctype declaration, and a few new functions, that may or may not be utilised in your websites. If you have a fully fnctioning website written in HTML 4 and you changed the doctype to conform to HTML5 standards, providing you didn't use any of the brand new features, your website would work the same way in all browsers as it already does. Whereas once you start drawing vector images and embedding direct video, you may run into some browser issues. That is the only way I can explain it.

    To summarize, go ahead, get used to the new standards and experiment. If something doesn't work the same in all browsers, find a way around it, or take it out for another few months until the majority of browsers do. Hope this helps.

    HTML5 is more advanced specially with multimedia features. We can embed video without third-party proprietary plug-ins or codec. Video becomes as easy as embedding an image.
    Web pages will start storing more and more information locally on the visitor's computer. It works like cookies, but where cookies are small, the new feature allows for much larger files.
    Geo location best known for mobiles  have come up with HTML5.
