the thing with css transforms afaik(from what I've seen, read) is that they don't cause a refresh of the DOM for the browsers.
I don't really get why the fuck you would need "native application performance" if it's talking about native application performance when it comes to fucking boxes with static content.
now if the devices had ok canvas support..
on another related thing, I was playing around with intel xdk(formerly appmobi??) today. trying to get the App Game Interface(basically should act like a canvas but in different thread?) demos to work on android. no dice. they say it's supported but it sure doesn't work on any androids I have. a shame, the sdk itself is very nice, but even the test player on android is monkeyballsucks(and at just 1000 installs from the market, too).
somehow thats what has been the defining factor for such write once deploy everywhere for the past _decade_ - it always works fine on the simulator and then they don't follow through with the thing you would actually need the fucking thing for...
