SmartBear HTML5 Testing Tool Now Supports Sencha
Mullany said demand for HTML5 is growing for four primary reasons. "I think it's a combination of a few factors," he said. "First, every major browser now has support for what we like to call HTML5.0—all the fundamental HTML5 features for styling, graphics, media, animation and content. Second, HTML5 browsers have reached a critical mass of installed base, on mobile in particular. Third, developers are genuinely excited by the kinds of experiences that it's possible to develop with these features. And finally, particularly within the enterprise, people have realized that putting a huge amount of engineering investment into native application development isn't a supersmart move given the market share volatility among mobile devices in the last few years. HTML5 is looking really to them as the future proof investment."
