HTML6 is the sixth revision of HTML, and it is expected to surpass the popularity of its predecessors in the World Wide Web. HTML is the language of the web that has been used for building the net since its introduction. Its latest version is HTML5, released in 2014, which was a step towards hypertext markup language standardization.
Features of HTML6
HTML6 has been developed to address the missing features of HTML5. Writers and software experts mention various features to expect from the latest version:
Automatic image resizing
Web developers are often faced with the question of how many pixels are needed for an image to look good on the screen. The current answer depends on the platform, image, and window size of the device used. This makes it harder for the HTML protocol to determine when to increase or decrease image sizes for optimum viewing results. With HTML6, users can take advantage of srcset that functions as suggestions to help a browser decide on how to resize a picture automatically.
Writing tags for websites takes a lot of time, examples being <logo></logo>, <navigation></navigation>, and <sidebar></sidebar>. With HTML6, tags are now expressed. For example, instead of writing <div id=’container’>, programmers can simply put <container>.
More annotation options
With the current HTML structure, annotation on paragraphs, words, and sentences is possible. However, with programmers wanting the ability to annotate videos and images, more annotation options are expected.
HTML6 will allow access to a device’s media content and use it in a variety of ways. It can offer more control over the way images are captured and the use of filters and effects.
HTML5 has great security, but it is enhanced in HTML 6. Instead of using cookies, embedded keys make digital signatures better. Keys are also stored off-site to prevent access by unwanted people and boost authentication.
