HTML5 is designed to deliver almost everything you want to do online without requiring additional plug-ins. It accommodates content ranging from animation to apps, music to movies, and can also be used to build complex applications that run in your browser. HTML5 is also cross-platform; it does not care whether you are using a tablet or a Smartphone, a netbook, notebook, or a Smart TV. The protocol can also be used to develop web applications that are usable even when you are not online. Though still a work in progress, HTML5 is supported by the current generation of web browsers, and will eventually become a web standard.
CSS3 utilizes a truly responsive design, consistent with crafting sites that provide an optimal viewing experience, easy reading, and navigation with a minimum of resizing, panning, and scrolling across a wide range of devices (from mobile phones to desktop computer monitors). A site designed with RWD adapts the layout to the viewing environment by using fluid, proportion-based grids, flexible images, and CSS3 media queries, an extension of the media rule.
