HTML 5 or Silverlight 5: Hey why not use them for what they are good at!


A few days ago, Scott Hanselman proposed a different opinion as well as a good way of deciding which of the 2 technologies to be used and when!

I personally think that HTML 5, will get there and do what browsers do best: Be used everywhere!

Yes it will bring awesomeness and shiny cool new things… and it will bring some new problems as well.

My fear is when people start talking about HTML 5 as a way to produce a business application that should be in fact a desktop version. Do you get me?

At one point, developpers have to stop trying to tweak their web app to make it behave behave like a desktop …. It’ll never be one!

A plugin based app IS sometime more appropriate than a web app just like a native platform app IS sometimes better than a pluging!

Desktop > Plugin > Web App

or if you prefer:

WPF > SilverLight > Asp.Net
