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.

Actually, WebSQL was dropped. IndexedDB is something else entirely. It's a simple key-value store with support for indexes and cursors.
