HTML or HTML5

I'm starting to build a new website with HTML5. I've looked up pros and cons of HTML5 and got confused if i should use it or not. While its better for SEO, its still going through lots of changes and not supported by some versions of browsers.

What do you, guys, think of that?

Thanks in advance!

I think HTML 5 is not supporting all browser so you should wait for developing
in html 5 for browser compatibility purpose..

you can use html5 if your targeting mobile browsing (which is a trend this days), but if you tend to target all including desktop users its better to stick of html..

IE<8 is altogether under 5% now while IE8 has about 15%. It's time to start making modern websites. For the few remaining percents, if you know your particular market is stuck with older browsers, there are compatibility fixes and fallback solutions to employ.

I've used HTML5 and CSS3 for all my clients for quite some time now, taking care that if a legacy browser is used nothing will break but merely not look as good (no rounded corners etc.) or with extended functionality disabled (geolocation and other HTML5 features that wouldn't be present if I used HTML 4.01 anyway). The new tech is merely making things better for people who can use it, if they can't, no harm done.

I personally don't think there is any reason to stick with HTML 4.01 as long as the general public is the target market.

I would you HTML5 in combination with a program called modernizr. The modernizr will rework the HTML5 code for those browser that do not support a specific function. I have used it on my new site and I am happy with the results.

You would get less file size with html5. But with the internet speed up for most users these days I dont think that would make any significant difference on SEO as per page speed.

Also I would wait till HTML5 used on most commonly used browser versions; unless its a mobile only site.

I use HTML5 on my main website, and I would say it is very safe to use it as long as you keep it simple. I don't try to use 3D canvas now because most browsers won't take it, but I do use header, section, aside, audio and video because they are widely accepted.

If you follow this line, I am sure you will not have problems.

As nemrod said it's fine to start using the general HTML 5 stuff now, the new form properties, local storage, locations, that kind of thing. But I'd the leave full 3D stuff out of it for a while.

As HTML5 is new so it is not that much easy or to specify which one is better. From SEO point of view it is still not cleared yet... But you can start building your site in HTML first then can move on to it's 5th generation

You should go with html 5, google love implementing new technologies, google loves microtags also, rich snippets.

these are signs that html 5 is good for seo, even try to implement css levlel 3 or above

i think html5 is the way to go because it looks better and the amount of work you can do such as rounding borders is in my opinion way superior (in html4 you need to design round borders and then css it).
also it is worth noting that more and more people are using mobile devices to browse the internet so in terms of compability html5 it is better than html4.

For a mobile web app, HTML5 has a lot many features and perfect to use. SEO point of view, it is not applicable.

I use HTML5 on my primary website, and I would say it is very secure to use it provided that you keep it easy. I don't try to use 3D canvas now because most internet explorer won't take it, but I do use headlines, area, aside, movie and sound because they are commonly approved.

HTML5 is good for mobile we apps. Some of the features are not supported by web browsers.
