HTML5 still under development

HTML5 is the future of web development. Figures like Apple CEO Steve Jobs and Google CEO Eric Schmidt promote the standard and make it trendy. Many web developers already started creating websites with features provided by HTML5. However, the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), the official standards organization of the Web, declares that it is too early for the HTML5 to be use broadly on the web.

Phillippe Le Hegaret from W3C told InfoWorld, “The problem we’re facing right now is there is already a lot of excitement for HTML5, but it’s a little too early to deploy it because we’re running into interoperability issues.” He also mentioned that the HTML5 specification will be “feature-complete by mid-2011,” so Flash will be commonly used on the web for a while.
