Most Developers Now Prefer HTML 5 For Cross-Platform Development. Is it true? Part II
In our previous article we wrote that recent survey run by Kendo UI shows that the majority of developers now prefer to work with HTML5 instead of native apps for their cross-platform development.
From another point of view.
The company which conducted the survey is developing tools for Silverlight, ASP.NET and a some of other Microsoft owned platforms, HTML5 tools… So they are the first who are the mostly interested in the results they got…
Yes HTML is the first choice for the cross platform development. But just ask yourself: do you really need the cross platform development within single company? It is obvious that within one company all employees use the same operating system, etc. So why you will spend extra money for developing the applications which are unnecessary? Possibly it is better to develop the native applications instead.
HTML isn’t the best choice for the really sophisticated programs. There are various vehicles: cars, trucks, motorbikes, etc. Each kind is designed for the special use. So HTML will never replace the native languages in some areas and vice versa.
