Back in March I commented on accusations that Apple was attempting to hinder the success of HTML5 by making Web apps run slowly when “installed” on an i-thing home screen. The argument was that they wanted to push people towards native apps and the appstore. (See my original article for more details).
I thought that this was probably nonsense, and suggested that the slightly poorer performance in iOS of installed HTML5 versus browser-based HTML5 was much more likely to be a cock-up than a conspiracy.
