Flash games, until recently, were the rule of browser games; now, however, many web applications, streaming services and games are taking advantage of the new technology HTML5. The result is fluid and light web pages, with multimedia features (see also the article on how to plug-in to watch Youtube videos in html5), complex 3D animations and increasingly engaging interactivity.
For this, today we see a little bit of HTML5 games and amazing websites that use the new HTML5 and can be played or seen without plugins and add-ons. The only requirement to open web pages in HTML5 is a compatible and up-to-date browser: Safari, Chrome, Opera, Firefox, Edge. It should also not be underestimated that such games are possible play online from both Windows PC and Mac, Linux and also from iPad or iPhone which do not support Adobe Flash.
The website to start from to find beautiful HTML5 games to play for free on your browser without flash and without downloading anything is HTML5games.
In HTML5games you can browse the games by category, or click on one of the recommended games to get started right away.
None of the games are hosted and produced by the site which instead functions as an index that aggregates the various HTML5 games from around the web providing a single portal where you can find the best. There is also a "mobile" category, perfect for anyone using a mobile phone, Android smartphone or iPhone. Since many smartphones do not have Flash support, you can play from mobile by going to HTML5games, without downloading any application and for free.
Among the nicest games found on HTML5Games there is 2048, a puzzle game or Soccerstatic.
