Indeed. The goals for web designers and app programmers, I would hope,
are the following:

(a) Get rid of the need for "an app for that" and just write it
     once in HTML5 for all devices including hand-helds.

(b) Cater to varying screen sizes with several style sheets geared
     to, say, large, medium and small displays.

I have enjoyed playing Angry Birds in Firefox and Safair. It was written
solely using JS and HTML5. Impressive.


I wonder how it plays on a cell phone.
