July 12, 2012 Users Create More than One Million HTML5 Websites in 90 Days

HTML5 is all set for considerable growth in 2012. This is mainly because of the need for cross-platform development as a result of increasing mobile market fragmentation. One important aspect of HTML5 is that it lets developers build new types of features onto websites allowing them to behave on mobile phones like applications., a do-it-yourself Web publishing platform, recently announced that its users have created more than one million HTML5 websites since the introduction of its HTML5 website builder in late March 2012.

Wix allows a broader adoption of the HTML5 technology with 170 website templates catering to all business areas and an easy-to-use website builder with advanced features that need no coding skills. Wix users in the U.S. and Brazil are those who are maximizing the capabilities of the platform, according to Wix’ evaluation of the HTML5 websites created with the help of its platform, the company stated in a press release.

“Until now, HTML5 was a buzzword to describe the ‘future’ of the web. With Wix’ 1 millionth HTML5 site built this month, it’s clear that individuals and small businesses have decided it is the present and where the web is destined," said Avishai Abrahami, CEO of "No longer in the dark or stuck with having to outsource, the Wix HTML5 platform answers a wide market need. We provide our users with the hammer and tools to build their online real estate.”

Recently, TMC (NewsAlert) reported that the company will no longer support the Web browser Internet Explorer 8. The failure of IE8 to facilitate the rich and interactive HTML5 elements is the major reason for the company’s recent decision.
