One of the best things about HTML5 are all the new HTML5 tags. There’s the
<canvas> tag and the
<video> tags. I love the new attributes of the
<input> tag which allow your forms to collect data more effectively. (I know, these aren’t technically new tags, but they make the
<input> tag so much more useful that I can’t leave them out.)
Before I tell you my favorite new HTML5 tag, why don’t you tell us yours? (I don’t want to bias your choice…) Just fill out the form below. And if your favorite tag isn’t listed, please post in the comments about your favorite tag. I’d love to know why you like the tag (or tags) you chose.
I am one of those annoying people who has a hard time picking a “favorite” anything. Today I might like green and then tomorrow purple is my favorite color. But I think the most interesting new HTML5 tag is the
<canvas> tag. I love this tag because it is so versatile.
With the <canvas> tag you can:
- create animations
- build online games
- build a photo gallery or scrapbook
- draw and paint on the web page
- create fancy patterns and shapes
- and so much more…
I love the <canvas> tag, but that’s not to say that tomorrow I might decide I love the <datalist> tag more. There is so much to love in HTML5. I love all the new HTML5 tags!
