HTML5 is the long-awaited new standard for HTML code. It’s hard to believe that the last version of HTML, version 4.01, was unveiled in 1999. Needless to say, the Internet has changed tremendously in 13 years, and HTML was in dire need of an upgrade. As the CEO and founder of Coalition Technologies, one of the top web design firms in L.A., I have used every major programming specification to develop websites, and I’ve seen just how much the web has evolved in recent years. If you want to stay on the cutting edge, consider taking advantage of HTML5.
BigCommerce and HTML5
BigCommerce is one of the most powerful and versatile shopping cart platforms for ecommerce businesses, and while BigCommerce features a large selection of pre-designed templates and themes, the platform allows users a tremendous amount of design and development freedom. Best of all, BigCommerce uses HTML, so if you want to design or customize your website within BigCommerce, you can take full advantage of the new HTML features.
If you already use BigCommerce to run your online store, now is the perfect time to start integrating some of the new HTML5 features. The capabilities of HTML5 are actually quite stunning, and the possibilities are almost limitless. When you combine the content management possibilities of BigCommerce with the design and development possibilities of HTML5, your business is unstoppable.
The Benefits of HTML5
The animation capabilities of HTML5 are so sleek that the specification is often compared to Flash. But unlike with Flash, you don’t need any special software to view HTML5 animations. Most browsers are already HTML5 compatible, and the animation blends seamlessly onto the page, wrapping around text and images, or just softly twinkling into the background. It’s web animation for the 21st century.
But it’s not just animation. HTML5 enables sites to incorporate videos and music without any external software. Finally, websites have the ability to be fully interactive without being dragged down by third-party applications. It’s web surfing the way it was meant to be.
Why Choose BigCommerce?
If you have an ecommerce store, BigCommerce is your #1 choice for numerous reasons: top notch SEO, unparalleled support, powerful marketing tools, and of course, total development freedom. If you want to build a stunning custom website using the HTML5 specification, you won’t find a friendlier platform than BigCommerce. In addition to supporting HTML5, BigCommerce supports HTML’s CSS3 integration, so your design options are virtually unlimited.
As an online business, you want a website that will dazzle customers and give you an edge over your competition. HTML5 and BigCommerce enable you to achieve that end with amazing results. But if you truly want to reach your full potential, you need a web development partner that can help you to get the most from HTML5.
