Stick a fork in the desktop, it's done! Recently Google demoed a port of Quake II to WebGL and HTML5, showing that even first person shooters are suitable applications to run in the browser. While the tide isn't going to turn all at once, it seems more likely than ever that a browser-based desktop is a viable option and ultimately the way many users will experience all applications.
I’ve been playing around with getting a browser with proper WebGL support to run on my i.IMX6Q target.
I have already tried the browsers from qt5 examples, i.e. browser and fancybrowser. The site html5test.com [html5test.comhtml5test.com] reports that they are supporting 394 out of 555 HTML5 elements so it seems pretty compliant.
Microsoft General Manager announced a few days back that Microsoft understands the power of HTML5 and considers it the future of web. Although its a big news, "Microsoft supporting HTML5" but still, does it matter?
So you’ve heard all rumors about HTML5 would take over Adobe Flash. While most web community argues that it’s possible or not, you must be wandering what makes HTML5 so powerful that even giant company Apple wants to use it to replace Flash.
