I'd like to know is it true that the HTML will eventually become the future of Web apps? According to this piece: http://bit.ly/HTMLTheFuture it seems the era of Java web apps have gone.
I'd like to see the experts take on that.

I don`t think it will replace java, not even flash video streaming in the near future. Support for html5 isn't 100% yet.

There is a lot of hype around HTML5, most of which is nonsense. When the party is over, the lights are off and everyone's gone home, you realise that HTML5 is just a simple markup language—HTML—with a few new elements.

And yes, HTML5 is the future of web apps. It's a new w3c standard. It's not really a debate, it is where the web is moving to. Just like it moved to HTML 4.01. But like ralph.m said, it's really nothing special.

I agree. But almost all the browsers are giving full support to HTML 5 and also it is now started dominating in the mobile and web apps as well. I know lot of mobile apps companies who are building on HTML5.
So you're saying HTML5 is nothing but just a buzz? So, the question is why some Mobile apps development companies are jumping into the pool?
