What is Intel up to? It has just released a set of really good HLML5 tools, potentially the best yet, that allows you to create apps that are platform independent. This raises more questions that it answers. Why is an "Intel Inside" sticker on HTML5 so important?
Intel took the opportunity of launching its revamped developer offering for HTML5 apps at the Intel Developer Forum in Beijing in April. The aim is very high as you can tell from the title of arecent blog post - "One Code Base to Rule Them All". You might think that this is a null claim as HTML5 is standardized, but this is to miss the point that an HTML app running on different platforms has a very different runtime environment. The APIs available in a desktop browser aren't the same as those in an Android Phone and there are even differences between a Chrome and a Firefox packaged app.
