Is HTML5 a good choice for mobile application development?

Survey period: 10 Dec 2012 to 17 Dec 2012

Avoiding the topic of non-mobile development, does it make sense for ua to move to HTML5 as a write-once-run-anywhere platform for mobile devices? (I'll use "HTML5 platform" to mean HTML5, CSS3, Javascript and whatever interpreters/compilers are needed)

GeneralIt does not matter at all PinmemberIvaylo5ev13-Dec-12 1:30 
All the HTML5 stuff we are getting too excited about actually does not matter that much. Practically, it is just a new technology that is getting attention and the demands to it will cause most of us to learn it and use it, whenever we like it or not. What we can observe, however, is that HTML5 is presented as a possible solution to creating cross-platform and cross-browser applications, that rely on common standards. In reality it is about time to see whether Google Chrome, Safari, the android's built-in mobile browser or whatever system (not just browser) we have that pretends to support HTML5 will actually become the IE6 of the 21st century. HTML5 might have been created to become a simple and standard solution, but until it really gets there, it will be an arena for technology war of dominance and market shares.
