Branch Thread on HTML5 vs. Native Apps for Mobile

Interesting discussion. Bottom line, though, is that we should not view HTML5 and native apps as being pitted against each other. There are places for both. What we’re seeing with Facebook’s iOS app is not a sign that Facebook is turning against HTML5, but rather a shift in their priorities for a native app — that the optimal mix for their app is more native, less HTML5.
