It is not because a lot of people try to hack it and make it work because
they do not have a choice (Apple banning every single RIA technology from
iOS gives no choice to developers but to make HTML5 work no matter if it
means cutting everyone an arm and a leg. I would not applaud it! Facebook
is a brillant example of what happens when a platform is built on hacks, it
is absolutely not reliable.

HTML5/JS is a scam to me, a scam shove into our troat by Steve Jobs who is
probably laughing his butt of from the other side seeing so many people
trying to make something work when in fact the goal from day one was for
Apple to cripple the web and created an exodus of developers moving from
the web to proprietary iOS.
