CSS-HTML5.png

HTML, an abbreviation of Hyper Text Markup Language, first came into existence in late 80s to help describe a document’s structure and to allow cross-linking of documents. HTML has evolved multiple times since then, and many developers worldwide use it to provide better, faster, more consistent user experiences for desktop and mobile visitors. HTML now enjoys the close association with two allies - CSS and JavaScript. CSS enhances the appearance of HTML by describing the way the document is supposed to look. JavaScript, on the other hand, makes HTML more interactive. However, in this blog we will focus on the benefits of using the latest versions of HTML standard and CSS for business purpose.

As more and more people now prefer smartphones or tablets over PCs to surf the internet, mobile friendly sites with good user experience have become the need of the hour. Paying heed to the current demands of rich media, cross device and mobile internet access requirements, the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) in October 2014 published HTML 5, the fifth and the latest version of the HTML standard.

A Brief Introduction to HTML5

One of the biggest differences between HTML5 and previous versions of the HTML standard is that it provides one common interface to load elements in multiple browsers. Since the older versions of HTML require proprietary plugins and APIs, a web page that was built and tested in one browser may not load correctly in another browser. But same is not the case with HTML5, which completely obviates the need of installing a Flash plugin by allowing the element to run by itself.

HTML5 was designed keeping in mind cross-platform mobile application development. Besides, new syntactic features in HTML5, like video, audio and canvas tags, were specifically introduced to support multimedia on mobile devices. Offline storage is also one of the virtues of HTML5.

Unlike native applications, HTML5 applications do not link themselves to the underlying operating system while running within a web browser. Therefore, developers who use HTML5 don’t face the hassles of dealing with the time-consuming and complex development processes that native applications based on the internal operating system require. With capabilities to create visually appealing websites and interactive web applications, HTML 5 is likely to see continuous rise in its popularity.

A Brief Introduction to CSS

CSS stands for Cascading Style Sheets and has become a popular language for implementing front-end web design. The style sheet language describes the presentation of a document written in a markup language. When CSS was first designed, the primary intention was to enable distinction between the document content and the presentation of the document, including aspects such as the layout, colors, and fonts.

The capability of CSS to separate formatting and content makes it possible to correctly display the web page on different screen sizes and browsers. CSS3 is the latest version of CSS and has gained a lot of traction for contributing greatly to the popularity, ease of use and accessibility of the internet. The combination of HTML5 and CSS3 offers a lot of benefits, which is the next and most important section of this blog. Let’s take a walk through.

Why to Use HTML5 and CSS3 for Your Business?

#1 Saves Cost of Multi-Platform Development

With HTML5 and CSS3, there is no need to write multiple codes for different mobile platforms (like Android, iOS, Windows, etc). A single batch of code is good enough with HTML5 and CSS3 to run across multiple platforms. We call it an advantage because having to write one code for multiple platforms saves significant development and maintenance cost.

#2 Boosts Digital Marketing and SEO Efforts

To attain a good rank on search engines, the web page needs to be semantically accurate, and this is one of the best strengths of HTML5. It’s a known fact that a well-structured HTML page is easily read by search engines, which increases the possibility of bringing more organic traffic to your site. Content is the king but without an SEO-friendly web page, it’s highly unlikely for your site to rank high in search engine results pages (SERPs).

Specific mark-up features of HTML5 helps search engines easily find items like images, videos, scripts, style sheets, and more. The semantic elements of HTML5, on the other hand, allow developers to define different parts of web pages with ease.

#3 Compatibility with All Browsers and Devices

Many browsers are not compatible with all types of web pages, but HTML5 and CSS3 offer multi-browser and device support. With HTML5 and CSS3, developers can use many coding techniques to ensure that their sites run hassle-free on all browsers and devices.

#4 Offline Web Experience

You must have come across apps that can be used offline. Similar to that, HTML5 also allows to locally store web application code and content. The offline application cache allows HTML5 to support the storage of the code locally. It’s a boon to many businesses, like publishing, as allows access to the site even when the users are offline or have no internet connection.

#5 Geolocation

Geolocation is another brilliant feature of using HTML5, giving developers the-much-needed freedom to build apps that are location specific. Food and ecommerce sites are good examples of location-based apps. Every place has its own culture and buying habits. So, if you know the location of your users, you can offer them products that are popular there and figure out choices they are likely to make.

#6 Multimedia Support

HTML5 comes with audio and video elements to embed and allow the manipulation of new multimedia content. WebRTC makes it possible to connect to other people and control video conferencing directly in the browser. The Camera API in HTML5 provides a way to use, manipulate, and store an image from the computer’s camera. HTML5 offers a gamut of multimedia features to enhance user experience.

#7 Responsive Design

CSS3 helps developers create a webpage that is both responsive and aesthetic. Since users are likely to access your site or app via desktops, tablets or smartphones, it’s important that your web page looks good on all devices. Compared to the older versions of CSS and HTML, the latests ones (CSS3 and HTML5) help in a better way to resize, shrink, enlarge, hide, or move the content to make it look good on various screen sizes. CSS3 also sports features, like fancy borders, animation, typography enhancement, background styling features and additional presentational layouts, to add visual appeal to the web page. CSS3 is flexible, therefore you can make desirable changes to the web design process by tweaking the CSS3 code.

#8 Improved User Experience and Business Intelligence

The mix of HTML5 and CSS3 gives rise to the creation of web sites and web applications that are user-friendly and easily accessible. Every digital marketer knows that good user-experience ramps up conversion rates, which is why many web pages have already been built using the two languages in question. Besides, HTML5 allows to collect important data about customer behavior and run analytics on that to make right business decisions.

Putting HTML5 and CSS3 into use in the right manner opens new avenues for developers to build websites and web applications that are user-friendly, easily accessible and visually appealing. Apart from reducing cross-platform development cost, the two languages give a significant boost to your content marketing and SEO efforts. Being able to do so increases the visibility of your business, creates brand value and brings more loyal customers, which is the key to high ROI. So, you can use HTML5 and CSS3 for your business to increase your reach and optimize web experience.

Front-End Developers Should Avoid.jpg


Front-end developers are responsible for implementing visual elements that users of a site or app see and interact with. In simple words, we can say front-end development is all about what’s visible to users, from text and colors to buttons, images, and navigation menus. For the success of a site or app, it’s important that their interfaces are engaging and pleasing to the eyes of users. Besides, the design has to be immaculate too.


Front-end developers need to understand users and their behaviors to ensure top-notch front-end functioning of their site or app. However, there are some common coding mistakes that front-end developers often make. Through this blog, I am shedding light on 6 common coding mistakes that front-end developers should avoid to ensure a good user base and high ROI.

1. Coding with Older HTML Standards

Many front-end developers stopped the practice of coding with old HTML elements after HTML5 came into existence as the newest form of HTML. HTML5 allowed making a lot of changes in standard page design. As a matter of fact, front-end development has a heavy reliance on browser support. And, some browsers don’t get support from older HTML, which can become a bane of your site in a long run.


With older HTML, the front-end of your site could also go devoid of many modern and secure features that HTML5 is capable of bringing to your site. Therefore, coding with older HTML could put your site at risk of security attacks.

2. Not Testing Code with Major Browsers

If you miss out on testing your code for all the major browsers, your site could lose users who still like to use the same older browsers. JavaScript and client-side scripting are intrinsic part of front-end development. Therefore, it’s important to test your code in all the major browsers. Front-end developers can put into use their sites’ browsing analytics data to identify common browsers they would like to support. It’s also a good idea to use an external source for the same.

3. Not Creating Responsive Mobile Design

We have entered an era where people like to browse the web on mobile phones more than desktops. The rising trend of internet surfing on mobile phones makes it important to create a front-end design that is responsive and mobile-friendly. Modern front-end coding entails responsive design as default. Developers can also join the bandwagon of mobile apps or web apps to avoid having any loose ends.

If users are unable to access your site on their smartphones, they become likely to move to your competitors whose sites are easily accessible via their smartphones. Google has also stated many times earlier that responsive design is their preferred mobile configuration. It means responsive sites and separate mobile sites get ranking boost in search results way higher than those sites that are unresponsive or not mobile-friendly.


Since mobile devices have varied screen sizes, it’s worth writing code that supports all possible breakpoints. Developers can use emulators for testing to avoid the hassle of dealing with several devices.

4. Using Obsolete JavaScript Libraries

JavaScript libraries that will not be supported or maintained years later could inflict adverse impacts on your site. If support is no longer available for a JavaScript library that you used to build the front-end of your site, you will find yourself in a difficult situation. You may eventually have a dependency that is no longer functional.


So, it’s good for you to choose JavaScript libraries with active support, documentation, and consistent updates by their developers. It’s also important to ensure that the popular libraries you choose will be maintained for years to come. AngularJS and KnockoutJS are two of various examples of the worldwide famous libraries that are supported by big brands.

5. Not Using CSS and Div containers to Place Elements

The practice of using tables for HTML element placement has become the thing of past. Tables are a good fit for displaying information on charts, but certainly not for layout creation. Tables can be very complex and could cause flaws in design and misplacements in different browsers. Div containers and CSS are much better than tables when it comes to element placement and layout creation.

6. No Focus on Site Speed

Site speed directly affects bounce rates, conversion rates, revenue and user satisfaction. Site speed depends on various factors. For example, client side can become slow due to “Spaghetti” JavaScript code, whereas large images can slow down page loading speed.


Slow sites frustrate users, thus it’s beneficial to put into use site speed testers that identify design elements responsible for slowing down your site. Good site speed is also important from SEO perspective as it is one of the factors search engines take into account for rankings. Therefore, it’s a good practice to keep on testing your site and keep a track over its performance.


A front-end developer could easily avoid these common mistakes and ensure that their site is easy to use and loads fast. Moreover, good JavaScript libraries and supported code help design a responsive and mobile friendly site, which has become the need of the hour.
