WebFL.US, a Miami-based Web designed and mobile Web development firm, has released a new offering that promises to bring mobile commerce closer to HTML5. Developed by WebFL.US alongside its white label Web development counterpart, WLWeb.US, the new W3C (News - Alert)-validated online order and payment solution, dubbed mCartXP, facilitates the creation of mobile commerce apps that render as pure W3C standards-compliant HTML5 and CSS3.
Indeed, since most mobile Web browsers — Dolphin, Firefox, Mobile Safari, Opera, Chrome, etc. — support HTML5, any Android (News - Alert), Apple, iOS, BlackBerry or Windows Phone device can participate in transactions without the need for a dedicated app. On the developer side, this means platform vendor lock-in can be avoided, while also making it easier to ensure customer privacy is protected. Meanwhile, CSS (News - Alert) styling can be altered to better match the design of the sending Web page or receiving payment processor for a more seamless experience.
WebFL.US is no stranger to HTML5 development since the Web firm recently integrated HTML5-based WebRTC capabilities into its responsive Web design solutions for small to medium-sized businesses (SMBs) late last month. With mCartXP, however, WebFL.US is taking a firm stance on HTML5 development, while making mobile commerce far more accessible to everyone.
