Native vs web debate rumbles on
HTML5 is ready say creators of mobile HTML5 Facebook clone
To prove Zuckerberg wrong, two Sencha developers have developed an HTML5 web interface called Fastbook.
It was in September that Mark Zuckerberg infamously stated that the company “burned two years” by betting too heavily on HTML5. This came soon after the company was forced to replace their hybrid iOS app with a far speedier native one after a deluge of complaints. Since then, some have hit back at Facebook, insisting that the social network’s app was simply implementing the technology wrong. To prove the point, two developers at Sencha have developed their own HTML5-based Facebook web app which matches and in some cases exceeds the current native apps.
