HTML5 is one of those buzzwords that actually bears actual relevance to web developers. With cross-platform, cross-industry, cross-community, and cross-corporation support, HTML5 will likely become the quickest web standard to ever be adopted. Although it is wise to be wary of quickly adopting a new web technology, HTML5 may be the lone exception. And of all the existing forces in the web industry, it seems Microsoft may be making the biggest pro-HTML5 push of them all. Because of the push for HTML from Redmond, will ASP .NET become the choice of developers seeking HTML5 compliance?
Assuming that HTML5 will live up to the hype of its buzzword status and swiftly become the standard, developers will seek an easy and efficient way to deploy HTML5 web applications and services. It appears Microsoft has determined that they can target this new arena and win some of the developer shares it lost (or never had) to PHP, Ruby on Rails, and others. If nothing else, ASP .NET looks to be an improved platform with HTML5.
