10 Methods Introduced In HTML5 That Dramatically Improved User Experience

We’re assisting a SaaS company in optimizing their platform for organic search (SEO)… and when we reviewed the code for their output templates, we immediately noticed that they never incorporated HTML5 methods for their page outputs.

HTML5 was a significant leap forward for user experience (UX) in web development. It introduced several new methods and tags that enhanced the capabilities of web pages. Here’s a bulleted list of ten key HTML5 methods and tags with explanations and code samples:

  <h1>Website Title</h1>
    <li><a href="#">Home</a></li>
    <li><a href="#">About</a></li>
    <li><a href="#">Contact</a></li>
  <h2>Article Title</h2>
  <p>Article content goes here...</p>
  <p>&copy; 2023 WebsiteName</p>
<video controls>
  <source src="video.mp4" type="video/mp4">
  Your browser does not support the video tag.

<audio controls>
  <source src="audio.mp3" type="audio/mpeg">
  Your browser does not support the audio tag.
<canvas id="myCanvas" width="400" height="200"></canvas>
  const canvas = document.getElementById('myCanvas');
  const context = canvas.getContext('2d');
  // Draw shapes and animations here using JavaScript.
  <label for="email">Email:</label>
  <input type="email" id="email" name="email" required pattern="[a-z0-9._%+-]+@[a-z0-9.-]+\.[a-z]{2,}$">
  <input type="submit" value="Submit">
if ('geolocation' in navigator) {
  navigator.geolocation.getCurrentPosition(function(position) {
    const latitude = position.coords.latitude;
    const longitude = position.coords.longitude;
    // Use latitude and longitude data here.
// Storing data in local storage
localStorage.setItem('username', 'JohnDoe');
// Retrieving data from local storage
const username = localStorage.getItem('username');
// Storing session-specific data
sessionStorage.setItem('theme', 'dark');
// Retrieving session-specific data
const theme = sessionStorage.getItem('theme');
<div id="dragTarget" draggable="true">Drag me!</div>
<div id="dropTarget">Drop here!</div>
  const dragTarget = document.getElementById('dragTarget');
  const dropTarget = document.getElementById('dropTarget');

  dragTarget.addEventListener('dragstart', function(event) {
    event.dataTransfer.setData('text', 'Dragged item');

  dropTarget.addEventListener('dragover', function(event) {

  dropTarget.addEventListener('drop', function(event) {
    const data = event.dataTransfer.getData('text');
    // Handle the dropped item here.
  <source srcset="image-large.jpg" media="(min-width: 1200px)">
  <source srcset="image-medium.jpg" media="(min-width: 768px)">
  <img src="image-small.jpg" alt="Responsive Image">
  <summary>Click to expand</summary>
  <p>Additional content goes here...</p>

These additional HTML5 features further improved the capabilities of web development, providing developers with tools to create more interactive and user-friendly websites.
