Developer suggests that Facebook was the problem with Facebooks app, not HTML5 | The Verge

“When Mark Zuckerberg said that “the biggest mistake we made as a company was betting too much on HTML5 instead of native,” web tool developer Sencha set out to disprove his claims. To demonstrate the power of HTML5, Sencha created its own version of Facebook, dubbed Fastbook, as a proof of concept. As demonstrated below, using the mobile HTML5 site through Safari or the stock Android browser seems just as fast as the official iOS and Android apps, but the web version performs better in terms of loading new information from within the main Timeline and when switching between different sections.”
