Facebooks stance on HTML5

There has been a lot of talk around Mark Zuckerbergs comments on html5. As usual the Internet has taken the comments somewhat out of context…. And by somewhat I mean hugely.

This is what Mark actually said.

When I’m introspective about the last few years I think the biggest mistake that we made, as a company, is betting too much on HTML5 as opposed to native … because it just wasn’t there. And it’s not that HTML5 is bad. I’m actually, on long term, really excited about it. One of the things that’s interesting is we actually have more people on a daily basis using mobile Web Facebook than we have using our iOS or Android apps combined. So mobile Web is a big thing for us.
