Will html5 be used to develop software more comprehensive than any other former programming language?

will html5 software run on any platform? including windows, unix, linux, mac?

HTML5 is not a programming language. Period. It's a formatting language.

HTML5 is parsed in a browser. As long as there is a browser with support for HTML5 on the operating system, then it will "run" on that operating system... if the correct browser is used.

At this moment, html5 isn't fully compatible with all browser, so you can use it, but don't over use it... and test, do a lot of test (anyway you should always test, even if you use html4 or xhtml)

The sad reality is that IE6 is still floating around out there.

HTML 5 is a markup language, not a programming language. It's used for websites, not software. It's also a web language, meaning it works in the browser, so the OS is insignificant. It will work on any OS that has a modern browser. Non-IE browsers, as well as IE as of EI9, all support HTML 5.

Not true.
They only support HTML 5 partially.
THeir is no browser that currently support 100% of html5

And you have to keep in mind that most people don't update their browser, so their still a lot of ie7, ie8 and even ie6

Guys, thanks for your reply. Others said that software in future can run in html 5 browsers, so software will not be coded by html5, i am confused.

If I know C++, what should I do to let people use C++ software on a browser?

Think about it this way:
HTML5 provides content
CSS provides layout
JavaScript provides logic (programming) in the browser
server side languages provide logic on the web server, including access to databases.

You don't use C++ software in a browser.

They're here right now. With that said, they aren't replacing desktop applications. They have different purposes and places. Security concerns, bandwidth usage, speed, etc, are all issues.
