Can you please add support for HTML6? I just read about it, and I was shocked.
I'm not the best, but i like making games in Construct

Essentially there should be no issue with the current Construct 2 supporting HTML6's proposed standards and more to do with the target platforms. As long as your target platform supports say srcset, using it in Construct2 should work just fine. http://html6test.com/compare/browser/my ... g-3.0.html

HTML6, HTML/next sounds like it will be a great standard. One many will claim they are the master of while not following the standards set forth by the very gods who create them. https://validator.w3.org/ where real web devs find out if their work is worth anything, because anything more than a warning is crap code.

Here is is some good stuff if you have not seen it:

I've not heard any official information about HTML6. All I can find about it are jokes, speculation or misrepresentation. For example html6test.com is just a copy-paste of html5test.com with the term "HTML 5" replaced with "HTML 6" :P

Even if there was a HTML 6, it would just mean more features become available, which has been happening steadily already. For example WebGL 2 isn't actually part of the HTML spec, and is still a significant new feature which appeared without needing any new HTML 5.1 or HTML 6 spec. We'll keep getting new non-HTML-spec features like that as well. TBH these days browsers just add features individually without worrying about the spec version anyway.
