HTML5 specs finally finalized

The World Wide Web Consortium, or W3C, has announced that it has finally finalized the specs for the HTML5 standard after almost eight years of work. This should allow rich content to work seamlessly across desktop and mobile platforms. Though parts of HTML5 have been used by web developers over the years, the final W3C recommendation is now ready.

Early last month I wrote a piece about BlackBerry 10 and HTML5, suggesting that in the long term, RIM is making the right bet by pushing its WebWorks platform so hard. Between Webworks and native cascade-powered apps, mixed in with some Android love, RIM has their bases covered.

Not so long ago, Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook, ruffled the feathers of the HTML5 camp by saying that this new web technology wasn't really ready for prime time. It's well known that Facebook re-wrote its apps using native code because they weren't happy with HTML5 performance.

HTML5

In the world of mobile computing, HTML5 is a potential disruptive force to the current way of doing things. Perhaps more specifically, it can disrupt the way Apple invented the mobile app ecosystem.

Mobile apps existed long before Apple came along. As BlackBerry owners know, it has always been easy to grab a link to a JAD file, click on it, and have the app install itself on your BlackBerry phone. But when Apple introduced their App Store, they centralized the distribution of iOS apps and imposed their own set of rules on what would be permitted in the store.

BlackBerry 10 recently got FIPS Security Certification and we know that the BlackBerry 10 browser also scores pretty high in the HTML5 test. Now, the BlackBerry 10 has just passed another benchmark. The Ringmark Ring 1 test. 

First off, let's understand what Ringmark is. Ringmark is a test suite for your browser for apps built for the mobile web. It was developed by Facebook and went Open Source back in April. HTML5 is huge for web developers and mobile developers alike, so Facebook wanted to make sure there was a standard at which HTML5 apps should attain. It allows developers to understand "which mobile browsers support the functionality your app needs".
