  14. 14. Facebook and it’s mistake “The biggest mistake we made as a company was betting too much on HTML5 as opposed to native” - Mark Zuckerberg, TechCrunch Disrupt, Nov 9, 2012
  15. 15. Sencha strikes back with FastBook! “When you treat the browser as an application platform and leverage the features of HTML5, even the most sophisticated applications can be made with HTML5.” -Jamie Avins and Jacky Nguyen “The Making of Fastbook: An HTML5 Love Story” Dec 17, 2012
  16. 16. LinkedIn says “it’s the tools” “Because [a working debugger and runtime diagnostics information tools] don’t exist, people are falling back to native. It’s not that HTML5 isn’t ready; it’s that the ecosystem doesn’t support it. … There are tools, but they’re at the beginning. People are just figuring out the basics.” - Kiran Prasad, “Why LinkedIn dumped HTML5 & went native for its mobile apps”, April 17, 2013
  17. 17. A case of mismanaged expectations? “HTML5 is now close to prime time and more and more business are looking to HTML5 to solve market challenges.” - Rob Grossberg, “How HTML5 Crashed, Burned, and Rose Again”, Nov 18, 2013
