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)

Yes, HTML5 is a great platform23320.73
Yes, because having a single platform to target multiple devices is needed (regardless of the actual language used)35931.94
Yes, for other reasons171.51
Maybe. Not sure34830.96
No, we should use a different platform other than HTML5484.27
No, we should stick to the technology that suits the individual device968.54
No, for other reasons.353.11

Never underestimate the power of human stupidity
