The History Of HTML5 – Infographic

When the first version of HTML5 published in 2008, it raised more questions than it answered. Would it be a force of unification or division? Would content producers, browser programmers and device manufacturers agree to new standards? And would it finally solve issues related to multi-platform development?

Its fate was uncertain for some time, especially as heavyweights Apple and Adobe duked it out in the mobile arena. The future of Flash, the standard for streaming video on the web, hung in the balance.

In November 2011, Adobe announced it would stop development of Flash for mobile browsers. While HTML5 was gradually creeping into the web at large, this marked a turning point for the standard, and it only accelerated from there.

Check out the history of the language, from its inception to the major sites that have adopted it along the way (and even those that still lag behind). The timeline is created by Wix.com
