W3C says HTML 5 will be finalized in 2014, HTML 51 to follow in 2016

HTML 5 has been a buzz word around the interwebs for so long you’d be forgiven if you thought it was awell-established standard looking for a successor. In fact, nothing could be farther from the truth. The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), which helps establish the primary standards used online, didn’t actually intend to complete HTML 5 until 2022. Thankfully, the group has reconsidered that seemingly absurd timeline and now plans to have this whole mess wrapped up by the end of 2014. Continue reading

The gaps are even more pronounced among recent acquirers. Of all the US citizens who bought a smartphone over the past three months, a whopping 58.6% chose Android and another 33.0% went for iOS. The trend is understandable, given that the iOS flagship – iPhone 4S was already nine-months old at the end of that quarter, while the Android-powered One X had just made it to the market.
