GTK+ I've been ragging on GNOME a little bit lately, so let's balance things out by talking about something I found quite fascinating: the Gtk+ HTML back-end. This will enable you to run any Gtk+-application inside Firefox 4.0 (only Firefox 4.0 is supported at the moment).

That graph also shows 30% IE8, which IIRC doesn't support HTML5 either... but then, at least, that browser is new enough to hope ;)

HTML5 support aside, my main point is that GTK-over-HTML5 is a translation layer that might at best come close to the quality of a normal HTML5 + CSS3 web interface. Chances are that in reality it will fall behind.
