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 think I know why Kroc might have turned a bit of a blind eye to the performance parts of the loading of the pages, because ads are the worst offenders and they probably block loading of the rest of the page.

So anything the OSNews crew might do it improve things, wouldn't be very visible by the users as the ads would hide most optimizations (obviously not the anti-cache headers, cookies and so on they would all still be atleast some benevit).
