Submission + - Apple handcuffs web apps on iPhone home screen (theregister.co.uk)

SF Polack writes: "On Apple's iOS 4.3, HTML5 and JavaScript apps are running significantly slower when they're run from the iPhone or iPad home screen rather than Safari, and the OS is hindering the performance of these apps in other ways. The end result is that it that harder for web apps to compete with native iOS app sold through the App Store, where Apple takes a 30 per cent of sales."
