Are there any plans down the line to support HTML5
I know Gernot is busy with Android at the moment but in the long run ?
I'm just discovering the joys of the chrome app store with games like
Angry Birds  and
The Secret of Grisley Manor

seems a nice easy way to play online or simply install to play offline.

Android: Samsung Galaxy S2 -  ZTE Blade (Orange San Francisco) - Ainol Novo 7 Aurora 2
IOS: 2 x Ipod Touch (1G)

It's in the Labs. The main problem is, that JavaScript won't allow a Main() function. You would have to return the borwser and update frame by frame. Something like: SUB GLB_ON_MAIN_STEP: or so would have to be introduced.


Would flash be a better option?
I have seen some flash vs html5 arguments recently and flash seems to be outperforming html5.

html5 can do OpenGL :/

@Leginus: Flash has only a better performance if you are running it in Firefox. Try Chrome or IE instead.


@monono  I do already use chrome, but thanks for the heads up.
I was referring to something I had read in another forum. I can't relay the information to them though as I would have to buy the other product to be able to post, and i have NO intention of buying it, I am extremely happy where i am :)


ohh my god...

GLBasic throught HTML5 or Webkit? yes!!!!! please!!!!!!

I know that could be a knightmare for Gernot to try to make it... but if it is possible it could be very handful.

Another interesting option would be to make glbasic target HAXE, that itself targets HTML5, Flash and some other languages.

The easiest thing would be to keep HTML5 as a seperate application - that way it would be easier to debug.


GLB is GCC, how can this be linked to GCC? Or are we talking about a new cross-compiler altogether?
