HTML5 tops web app technology poll
Friday, 03 December 2010

Our November poll was about what's the next big thing for web development -  a question of much debate at present with a lot of momentum for HTML5 some question marks about Microsoft's commitment to Silverlight.



This proved to be a popular poll with over 450 votes cast. Its result was resoundingly clear - almost half the votes went to HTML5/CSS/JavaScript, with "Something yet to be invented (17%) beating Silverlight into third place with 15% of the votes. Google's Web Toolkit claimed 7% with Java applets (5%) Flash/Flex (4%) and Java FX (4%) completing the tail.




Given that our readers seem so convinced by HTML5 despite IProgrammer's best efforts to point out its shortcomings the next question has to be about JavaScript - so give us your verdict on JavaScript in the final poll of 2010. If you want to know more before voting why not read Why JavaScript is a Jem?
