In Your Face – Book

Posted on Tuesday, December 18th, 2012

In June 2012, Facebook decided to abandon their HTML5 web-app (for the moment) to focus on a native app experience. The reason for this is because Zuck thinks, as of now, that HTML5 is to slow. Well, leave it to the guys at Sencha to prove him wrong. In the article The Making of Fastbook: An HTML5 Love Story, over on the Sencha blog, they show how using their framework along with some best practice can provide not only a good, but better mobile experience than native in some ways. HTML5 is definitely a force to be reckoned with.
