Abstract: Although WeChat uses HTML5 technology to make the application number (APP), but it does not really use the essence of HTML5 — an open Internet, also determines that it cannot realize the ultimate ambition of WeChat OS "."
titanium media note: the author of this article has worked at Microsoft headquarters IE browser core R & D team, participated in the development of HTML5 international standards and IE HTML5 engine design.
as a HTML5 veteran, in his opinion, although WeChat has used the HTML5 technology to make the application number (APP), but it does not really use the essence of HTML5 — an open Internet, also determines that it cannot realize the ultimate ambition of WeChat OS ".
days ago, WeChat released a number of long-awaited (official name: small program) beta, immediately the circle of friends is a scraper, a time release overwhelming, the HTML5 development community as cheerful as a lark. We all believe that the mobile Internet ushered in a new era of WeChat operating system (OS), HTML5 Web App spring.
as a HTML5 in the field of entrepreneurial veterans, as the international standard HTML5 was one of the makers, this is exciting, but when I read the WeChat application, after the introduction, I have reservations about the "WeChat OS" in the future.
application number launch indeed coincides with the time
history is a mirror, the development of mobile Internet can get a lot of reference with the PC Internet, although the image is inconsistent, but the essence is the same. There are two kinds of software programs: one is C/S (client / server); the other is B/S (Browser / server).
APP mobile terminal and the PC side of the Windows software are C/S architecture, HTML5 and PC pages (HTML4) are B/S architecture. PC era, the early C/S architecture is the main, we are going to download the site to download Windows software, which is the end of the mobile application store to download APP process is the same.
later, we gradually began not to download the site, and gradually turned to use the browser to obtain information, B/S architecture based. From C/S to B/S is a key variable of the network bandwidth speed, because B/S is dependent on the network, as long as the network conditions once mature, B/S will be popular.
mobile terminal is also experiencing PC end of evolutionary processes, the network bandwidth is getting better and better, more and more users are not willing to go to the app store to download, I believe that all the people go to the app store number is less and less.
