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.

2006-02-20 worry about. Just stop with the flash/multiple pop up/"Are you sure you want to leave the page" annoying BS that has made the web a PITA just to surf. WTH is wrong with these people?

There are legitimate uses to these "Are you sure ?" modals, actually. I'm glad the Wordpress editor uses them, as an example. It's just too bad that people abuse them so much.
