HTML5: Bustin' the myths

Did you know you can build HTML5 apps that don't use an Internet connection? Did you know you can run HTML5 apps without a web browser? And did you know HTML5 apps can show snappy performance even on automotive silicon? (As you can well imagine, in-car infotainment systems don't ship with quad-core server-class CPUs.)

If you answered no to any of these questions, you need to stop for a minute and check out this interview with QNX Software Systems' Kerry Johnson. Heck, even if you answered yes to all three questions, you'll probably still appreciate what Kerry has to say — and besides, you'll catch a glimpse of a complete in-car UI coded in HTML5. What could be bad?

While I have you, check out Andy Gryc's Q&A series on HTML5, if you haven't already. You'll find the first two installments here and here.
