W3C Officially Unveils HTML5 Logo

has been around for a while and most of the major browsers have already integrated it and support most of the features it brings to the table. However, for unlike earlier versions of HTML, HTML5 did not have an official logo. That is until today.

HTML5 Logo

The W3C blog today unveiled the new HTML5 logo on their blog and through a press release. The logo was designed by a creative firm called Ocupop and represents HTML5, CSS, SVG, WOFF and other technologies which constitute the open web platform.

The new HTML5 logo does look futuristic and represents what the new technology is all about. HTML5 has introduced several new features including dedicated audio and video tags, offline caching and offline data storage among other things. HTML5’s video codecs have been a bane of contention with Google recently yanking off support for the H.264 codec in favor of the more open WebM codec in the browser. Even and openly support the WebM codec. Only Internet Explorer and Safari support the H.264 codec.

For those interested, you will find the new HTML5 logo at http://www.w3.org/html/logo/.
