The programming language makes it possible to transfer applications and websites designed with HTML5 to almost any platform, be it Windows, Blackberry, Android or iOS.

Freshdesk is one such company, who recently announced that its HTML5 Mobile app will allow businesses using the app to support its customers even when going mobile.
