HTML5 has long been a technology that has gained popularity among the industry’s bigwigs. The technology works across a whole host of different platforms, meaning that it can be used for a wide variety of different programs. HTML5 seems like it has lately been used more for making computer gamesthat can be played on a desktop or a tablet, but there are certainly other uses for the tech as well.
One such company that is seeing the bright future that HTML5 has is Intel (News - Alert), which recently announced that that company is putting together a ton of new tools that are all geared toward making it easier to program in HTML5 language.This particular set of tools is not yet available but Intel says they are coming down the pike shortly.
Renée James, senior vice president and general manager of the Software and Services Group at Intel Corporation recently talked about their tools that will help people write in HTML5. “Developers no longer have to choose one environment over another in order to maintain profitability and continue to innovate,” James saidin a statement. “What really matters is when all of these elements come together in a compelling and transparent cross-platform user experience that spans environments and hardware architectures. Developers who embrace this reality are the ones who will remain relevant.”
James and Intel aren’t really breaking any ground in their assumption that HTML5 is a key component to breaking the mystery of how to have a good cross-platform product. Intel also knows that HTML5 has had its fair share of problems early on and that is one of the reasons why some companies are not embracing the tech as much as you might think. James believes that quite a few of the problems have been ironed out enough that it seems like a tool companies should be using more in the future.
