Kevin Benedict's What's New in HTML5 - Week of September 16, 2012


I read an article by one of Facebook's developers this morning in which he discussed their challenges with HTML5.  He called for additional browser tools that would help with debugging HTML5 apps and hardware issues, especially in the area of tracking down memory problems.  It seems that Facebook manages so many photos and other media in their news feeds that its HTML5 mobile app was constantly having scrolling problems due to memory and hardware issues which made for a poor user experience and a buggy app.

The Facebook developer still thinks HTML5 mobile apps will ultimately win over native, but after some time and additional features have been added to the standard.

Ketan Anjaria, founder and CEO of app maker CardFlick notes that there are several advantages of HTML5 over native apps, but warns they come at a price.  “It's extremely easy to get updates out to everybody, you're always running the latest version, you can change things at will, you can track and analyze users a lot better. But you don't get performance. You don't get animation, and even though HTML5 says you can build on one platform and run on many, you still have to build for mobile platforms."  Read Original Content
