Mark Zuckerberg said during an interview at TechCrunch Disrupt that betting on HTML5 for the app is "one of the biggest mistakes if not the biggest strategic mistakes we've ever made". Now they are some very strong words.

 

The Facebook founder also stated that new features will be baked into the app, as well as a much faster Android-based version coming "when it's done", id Software style.
