Web applications have been supplanting desktop applications for many years despite the fact that they are generally of lower quality than their desktop counterparts. Part of the reason for this discrepancy is the comparatively greater capabilities of desktop applications for running inside a browser. However, the feature and performance gap has shrunk rapidly with the recent advances in modern browsers and their implementation of the HTML5 specification. The other major reason has been that web developers have had to make do with much lower-level APIs than desktop developers. Cappuccino changes all of that by bringing the renowned Cocoa framework to web development, which makes it an especially attractive choice for mobile web developers. Decide for yourself if Cappuccino is a good fit for your next great mobile web application.
