Well, HTML5 is still new and it's slowly making its way into the websites but HTML5 has a large room for tons of improvements. Here are eight proposals for HTML6 which can make Web development process faster, simpler and error-free too.
1. More control over video object:
More control over how the video frames are painted has to be focused in the next iteration of HTML. In the current version, a rectangle is filled with frames from a video and control is provided over a text track with annotations, subtitles etc. But it would be better to have callback hooks and synchronisation mechanisms in HTML6 and also the capability to mix DOM with video.
2. Browser-sizing of imagery:
A photo requires different pixels to look good on a mobile, desktop and a laptop screen. Even the resolution is different with the size of the window. If a better HTML protocol is followed, it can suggest a required width or height for the image, and also the server which can deliver the optimal resolution.
3. Pluggable languages:
4. Pluggable pre-processors:
5. Dedicated libraries:
6. Camera integration:
Users are always interacting with such a browser which has a camera and a microphone connected, as there are so many Web cameras and cellphone cameras around. HTML6 may add a photo or a video capture feature to forms as this element can access photos which are stored in the device. The device also offers better control of the camera and websites can have better specialised apps too.
7. Better annotation:
A better HTML structure can allow article annotations through paragraphs, sentences and words too. A sophisticated version can also allow annotations to images and videos.
HTML tags are different in headlines, paragraphs and footers. So it's important to create a certain standard to specify some common details like parts of an address or a phone number. Standard tags can speed up search engines and will benefit all of us. Microformats were supposed to be part of HTML5 too but it didn't happen. Markups can also be used for locations, times, dates, items for sale, bibliographies, and all forms of standard data.
