no one apparently is using HTML5 for Windows "app" development


Never say never: I might be the odd man out but I've been doing that for a number of years now. After getting tired of MS changing their UI tools I decided to stick with a browser and HTML. My apps include a tiny server, leave all the formatting issues to to browser and use JSON for communication between the two.

With a few tricks, I manage to pack everything in one exe file and tell my customers to do installation in DOS fashion: you copy the file somewhere an run it. Do you remember those days?
