Billions of connected devices with fast and modern web browsers and possibilities are appearing on the market. And users wants fast, reliable and easy to use mobile apps. In this session, we are going to talk about mobile browsers, where we are and where are we going to in the next year. Browser types, the power (and challenges) of WebKit on mobile browsers, the rebirth of Internet Explorer on the mobile space and the appearance of HTML5. We will see what we can really use today, what are the problems, compatibility and we'll discuss what are we covering when talking about HTML5.
We'll see what are the new things that we need to understand behind the HTML5-umbrella, including Data-URI, viewport definition, pixel ratio and new APIs that we can use today on the mobile web, including accelerometer, geolocation, device network, native apps communication, debugging tools and what to expect in the near future on device APIs, including current discussed standards and hybrid-based solutions, such as PhoneGap or WAC widgets.
