HTML5 is the latest version of the HTML specification. It was published in 2014, with initial browser support, and developer encouragement to start using it started in 2012.
HMTL5 brought a wide range of new ‘tags’ to the specification, which improve the semantics of a website by strictly declaring the elements in the tag name. New tags include header, footer, nav, section, and article.
Various other new tags were included to handle elements of multimedia, which were only previously possible using Adobe Flash. HTML5 pushed the diminish of Adobe Flash, allowing developers to focus on accessible features on all devices. These new multimedia tags were video, audio, and canvas.
I use HTML5 to ensure the code of a website is semantically correct, using the appropriate tags for that part of a website. This ensures the code of a website can be read easily by screen readers, and is crawl-able by search engines.
