Microsoft launches contest to encourage HTML5 content creation without browser plug-ins

Quote:
This kind of native HTML5 content is key to Microsoft and other phone and tablet makers going forward. As I’ve blogged previously, IE 9 is a key pillar of Microsoft’s tablet/slate push. And Microsoft is looking for native HTML5 apps, not ones powered by plug-ins like Silverlight and Flash — or Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) ones that are tied to the Windows client OS — to populate its app store(s) in the future.

“We believe that HTML5 and related technologies, in conjunction with faster and faster browsers, finally give developers the tools they need to create experiences that are just as vivid, interactive and high-fidelity as what you have come to expect from native applications without the need for plug-ins. We want to see what you can do unplugged,” reads the text on the Dev Unplugged site.

Interesting, this presents a good look at where we are headed..
