HTML5 is so good, that almost actually no one real programmer is using it!
It's a joke with serious programming, produced on a hype out of a screamed laud big lies of Jobs.
Thank You Jobs, now almost every complete moron think that he can do software, and believe that it will run everywhere.
(just more and more missconceptions stacks)

It's about time, now hopefully the browsers will get the needed access to the mobile features like gestures and the like.
it's time to get rid of the financial dependency and extortion developers are forced to live with and pay especially to Apple.

@BatMan - Not sure what you're talking about. There are plenty of web apps taking advantage of the features of HTML5. Ever hear of Facebook? Twitter? Gmail?
@dcu - +1 I'm just afraid Apple (and others) will cripple web apps in mobile devices (not that they aren't already crippled!) to preserve their cash cow. Unfortunate.

Well, if this is like VBA, when suddenly every excel user fancied himself as a developer quickly adding lots of useful stuff to their sheets, eventually becoming a support nightmare.

If you want to make an app and maintain it easily and quickly there are many cloud based services which allow to do it. Most of them even support drag-n-drop functionality that works for non-programmers too. I am using snappii platform that offers lots of helpful features and allows creating really feature-rich and complex native apps.

What is the level of expertise of 57% mentioned above. This level talks that: "we surely can evaluate 2+2 on HTML5!" Great? No!
We just accomplished 2-month research on HTML5 - it is awful in the 2 main topics where it must wins!
1 - the cross-platformity is stopped by proprietary engines (like iOS or IE). Your final page is patchwork quilt for different browsers.
2 - very weak support of enterprise solutions: weak support of storages and cross-page communications, restriction of multithreading. On server-side you have to rework your services to web-socket support.
Finally - use HTML5 to display cool pictures of your kitten, but not for serious applications.

Good to see Kik with over 100million users supporting the HTML5 card platform for messaging and also some popular app like Belly (which was native and then went HTML5 hybrid) being quite successful. I just finished a large contract for a major enterprise which did not want to support what was two different mobile app code teams and was going to become three with iOS, Android and Windows mobile. Enterprises which often natually have a lot of different kinds of devices to support and don't need the utlimate high polish consumer face are getting to be a no brainer for HTML5 hybrid territory. I still would not recommend it for extreme high polish or 3d game type apps however it's increasingly going mainstream for others as the support gets better.
