Re: HTML5 and mobile devices
Well put, Alan. Clearly, HTML5 aims to continue the idea of a universal Web. As mobile devices gain computing power, as the inevitably will, there will be greater incentive to leave the native app behind and write code in HTML5.

Re: HTML5 and mobile devices
It certainly seems like an HTML5 app economy is in the cards. As you have noted, there's lots of enthusiasm and the concept of a sort of write-once-read-many way of delivering apps to the "world" has got to be appealing. Especially at the point when, apps have been around long enough to have lifecycle management issues. In other words, who wants to have to update and rewrite apps for every device or OS when there's another, easier way....

Re: HTML5 and mobile devices
Alan, do you think there will be an HTML5 app economy? Hmmm, what a concept!

Re: Mobile or not?
Yes, some of the HTML5 demos are really impressive, amazing, even. And all running in your browser.

 

One question I have is, does McNamee still believe in this technology as much as he once did? He was very vocal about it a year or two ago, but less so, lately, that I can see. He is a  smart guy and i can't imagine he could have been all wrong about it to begin with, but perhaps he was pushing it publicly as part of some other agenda. I don't know. But he definitely had some big expectations and saw a real pivot about to happen in the marketplace, away from google-style search and Apple-style native apps, as I recall.

Re: HTML5 and mobile devices
@John I suppose anything is possible - even a drop in support for mobile.

(Your phone sounds super! Does your it plug into a wall or something? A new smartphone should support all or almost all of HTML5's groovy features. I'm still using a 1st generation Motorola Droid so you're not alone in the slowed upgrade game.)

Re: HTML5 and mobile devices
I'm curious to see who the leaders might be once HTML5 is widely adopted. Older smartphones don't support a huge chunk of HTML5 features.

Mobile or not?
I have to say I am looking forward to the jump in richness that HTML5 promises, but if this does not translate to the mobile I will be shocked and Aw'd.

Re: HTML5 and mobile devices
Hopefully HTML5 will get some big-name or big-ticket sponsors and backers. Flash has had its run and after all this time, there are a lot who remain unsatisfied. Let's hope these performance issues are solved sooner rather than later.

Re: HTML5 and mobile devices
Michelle, I agree. I have never been a huge fan of Flash and it takes up so much of my system's resources. On mobile, I find that my battery drains really fast (much too fast!) when I'm checking out a Flash website or accessing a Flash-based app. I am definitely looking forward to seeing HTML5 on future devices.
