If you're looking for inspiration -- or just want to see what HTML5 can do -- the Creative Bloq website has put together this gallery featuring 55 amazing examples of HTML5. Above, the Yas Marina Circuit, which is described as such:

Built by LBi for Etihad Airways, Yas Marina Circuit enables you to race around Abu Dhabi’s famous Yas Marina Formula One Circuit. Guy Jarvie from LBi explains that there’s "an abundance of interesting facts around the Yas Marina Circuit and Abu Dhabi’s motorsport scene. The danger was to either create a 'too long; didn’t read' page or skimp on content. HTML5 solved this problem for us as it allowed us share a wealth of information, but present it in manageable slices."

The use of HTML5 revolved around the site’s background, where the team converted a four-metre-wide image, weighing in at 1.4MB, into3000 lines of SVG that reduced its size by more than 20 per cent. Jarvie also notes, following some particularly careful planning, that "thanks to HTML5’s versatility, code already available and hopefully our preparation, the actual build process was not too painful."
