Can HTML5 replace crusty old vertical market applications?
lbloom 2 years ago
Throughout my career, I’ve run into a number of poorly-programmed applications for vertical markets. Whether it’s supporting medical services or a real estate multiple listing service, most of these programs have a Windows 3 look and feel about them: crappy graphics, slow and buggy performance, and poor to nonexistent technical support from their developers. If HTML5 can make it easier for programmers to write code that works in Windows and on a tablet or phone, it could finally kickstart a new wave of better-written software that isn’t so painful to use. What do you think?
