During the TechCrunch Disrupt conference today, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said that going to HTML 5 for Facebook’s iOS app was a big strategic mistake. As we all know, Facebook’s HTML5-based app was sluggish. The company recently released a native app to replace the HTML 5. The new native app is a much faster experience.
I also love that Zuck absolutely smacked down HTML5. As he should. Most would pussyfoot around it. They screwed up. He admitted it.—
