Chrome deprecates HTML
Chrome team is rolling out the latest update to the most popular web browser. The major change in version 82.11 is deprecation of HTML, a legacy format for documents.
"It was a matter of time," says team leader. "The vast majority of the web runs on JSON and MPEG-4, HTML constitutes only 2% of web traffic. Deprecating support for HTML allows us to redirect engineering resources to more important areas, such as input fields and cookies."
Historically, HTML was as out of reach for regular developers as Assembly language. This means that the change to the browser should not affect you as a a developer.

Some experts are worried that this step brings accessibility of web development even further from normal people.
