The best feature of HTML 5 that makes it different from other versions is that we do not need to install any plugin for execution of the websites, all famous browsers like Internet Explorer, Mozila Firefox, Safari, Chrome and others provides support for HTML 5 platform developed sites.
The tags in HTML 5 are nearly same as in earlier versions but this platform provides better functionality and graphics for development.

According to me, it is best used in mobile apps and attractive website. It once the bugs are worked out is using native code, not an add-on. It has a large advantage.

Hello....
Here are some benefites of using HTML5:-

1)The new HTML 5 video element makes it just as easy to embed video elements on a web page.
2)The new canvas element provides developers with a very powerful and very simple way to using pure Javascript to draw diagrams, graphics and dynamic animations on a web page.
3)HTML 5 provides a new SQL-based database API that can be used for storing data locally, that is client side.
4)An offline application HTTP cache that can be used to make sure applications are available even when the user is disconnected from their network.
