HTML5 On The Rise: No Longer Ahead of Its Time- by Shikhir Singh/ Crunch Network/ TC/ techcrunch.com

"Today marks the one-year anniversary of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) declaring the HTML5 standard complete, a significant milestone in the history of the Internet and web application development. In this past year, HTML5 adoption has gone into overdrive, with more and more companies moving to HTML5 to deliver rich cross-platform web applications.

Google plans to begin pushing Adobe Flash Player closer to its inexorable grave at the end of the year with a new version of its Chrome web browser.

Chrome 55, which the web giant plans to release in December, will replace Flash with HTML5, Google said on Monday. Noting that the browser plug-in has played a key role in the proliferation of video on the internet, Google said the change will lead to improved security, reduced power consumption and faster page load times.

"HTML5 is much lighter and faster, and publishers are switching over to speed up page loading and save you more battery life," Anthony LaForge, curator of Flash in Chrome, wrote in a blog post. "You'll see an improvement in responsiveness and efficiency for many sites."
