HTML5 For Corporate Websites

Let’s take some time to review the statistics of HTML5 and how effective it has been with companies and generating revenue.

  • Among Fortune 500 companies 30.6 percent are using HTML5 for their company websites.
  • An interesting fact: The 153 companies that did use HTML5 of their digital properties in 2012 generated more profits than the 161 companies using XHTML 1.0 Transitional.  Yet, XHTML 1.0 Transitional is still the most popular with 32.2 percent.
  • HTML 4.0 Transitional and HTML 4.01 Strict has only a mere 7.8 percent when combined together.

With HTML5 and XHTML 1.0 coming so close together percentage wise, it would make most industry professional want to predict whether or not HTML5 will slowly begin a take over for the 2014.  We all know when a product or service increases revenue, it gains positive attention, and users will begin to make the switch.  What does the future of HTML5 have in store?
