20+ HTML5 Web Apps For Those On a Deadline

HTML5 is the latest web technology that’s been rumored to kill Flash for some time now. I wouldn’t put my money on it, but I must admit that when it comes to web application development it has some advantages you can benefit from to make your life easier and create a more enjoyable experience for your site’s visitors.

So, what’s so special about HTML5? The most important thing is that you don’t need a plugin to get video support or embed videos because your browser already supports that. It also includes storage for offline web applications. Bottom line, if you’re on a deadline, these HTML5 web apps can really come in handy and help you work faster and get things done in time.

In this post you will go through a collection of 20+ HTML5 web apps, such as animations, time management, chart creating and more, that can save you lots of time, while you focus on other pending tasks.
