Yeah but there is a huge difference between writing a html5 app that will be served over http to a variety of web browsers versus a html5 app that is only run by the os' html renderer.


Honestly, I think we need a better framework than HTML5 that is designed from the ground up to run apps. Thus, you keep HTML5 for web pages and content, and a different framework for apps. Either that, or find a way to make scripting for HTML5 on the client side language agnostic, instead of all these janky wrappers for Javascript we have now.
