Web 2.0 InfoWorld's Peter Wayner discusses the 11 hard truths Web developers must accept in making the most of HTML5 -- especially those who are looking to leverage HTML5 in hopes of unseating native apps. 'The truth is, despite its powerful capabilities, HTML5 isn't the solution for every problem. Its additional features are compelling and will help make Web apps formidable competitors for native apps, but security issues, limitations of local data storage, synchonization challenges, and politics should have us all scaling back our expectations for the spec.'

I don't manage OSNews' code. I updated the header, so most of that is my code, but the bulk of it is old and complicated and as everybody is a volunteer and busy, it won't be changed any time soon. I'm well aware of performance best practices which my own site employs, but OSNews is not my work.
