I’m excited to see them fully embracing HTML5. One thing I really enjoy about Ext JS is that I don’t have to think about the presentation layer much. They just deliver.
They have been showcasing their support for HTML 5 also in a flurry of blog posts:
- HTML5, Video, Canvas, and Ext JS
- A HTML5 Primer for the Overwhelmed
- The HTML5 Family: Web Storage
- The HTML5 Family: CSS3
- The HTML5 Family: Web Workers
- The HTML5 Family: Geolocation
- HTML5 Is Here Now
Then finally with the release of Sencha Touch, an HTML5 Framework for Mobile. As they state:
The initial beta supports IPhone and Android and delivers enhanced touch effects and data request using Ajax, JSONp, or YQL and takes advantage of HTML5 Local Storage.
Exciting to see not only HTML5 beings upported, but a mobile application framework. I will definitely be watching Sencha alongside my other HTML 5 research.
