Original OSNews Interviews A Hong Kong-based startup run by former Mozilla President Li Gong aims to take on Android with its new Web-based operating system, H5OS. Similar to the Firefox operating system from Mozilla, H50S is based on HTML5, a website development language that tries to give Web apps the same capabilities as so-called native applications that are downloaded to a device like the iPhone. More on H5OS here.

I really, really blame jquery and its ilk. Web Devs use so many crappy layers of toolkits on toolkits to do the simplest of things.

I really doubt that most are going to suddenly embrace a technology that is more difficult. I suspect that idiots will write toolkits to make coding webassembler easier, which will rob all of the performance out.

Well, I hope you miss on this but I strongly suspect you will not. o.O

I wish they use the opportunity to bring also a little bit of more standardization to the chaos presented to us by so many levels of abstractions / meta-factories / indirections / virtualizations on the code side.
