Most Developers Now Prefer HTML 5 For Cross-Platform Development. Is it true?



Kendo UI surveyed about 5,000 developers from around the world in January 2013. Most of the developers worked for small and medium businesses (51%), 29% worked for start-up companies and 20% for big companies.

Thus the recent survey shows that the majority of developers now prefer to work with HTML5 instead of native apps for their cross-platform development. They queried 5,000 developers and half of them developed apps using HTML5 in 2012. And 90% of them plan to do so in 2013. Only 15% of developers said they would prefer to use a native-only approach.

Now haw about the operating system, they are working with?

The most developers said they are developing for Windows 8 (66%) and ChromeOS (47%). They are not really interested developing in Blackberry 10 (13%) and Tizen (8%).

Given that these developers were likely already interested in HTML5 before they took the survey, chances are the results are somewhat biased toward HTML5.
The developers from the survey said that Blackberry and iOS are the most difficult platforms to develop for. Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 ranked as the easiest. Android is in the middle.

So what kind of HTML5 apps are the most often being developed?

The productivity apps (54%) and utilities (38%) are on the top of the list. Entertainment, lifestyle, travel apps and games ranked at the bottom.

The most developers consider that the most important modern web technologies are:
• forms and validation
• databases
• flexible layouts (grids, flexbox, etc.)
