A superfast HTML5 Facebook web app

HTML5 experts Sencha has built Fastbook, a Facebook web app, to show that HTML5 is ready to take on greater things than Facebook will give it credit for. Even if HTML5 is not the final solution to all of your cross platform related problems, this is an impressive proof of concept.

You can try out Fastbook for yourself here (it probably won’t work if you haven’t got a modern webkit browser) and read more about how they did it over at Sencha’s company blog

Really cool work. My friend Matt preaches HTML 5 but I remain skeptical at least with today’s devices. Guess he gets a point in his favor today.
