There was another thread about this somewhere... it's not a given games will be anywhere near fast, because webkit by itself only includes a very slow software renderer. Each browser maker has to add their own GPU acceleration to make it fast.

Maybe it will be gpu accelerated? Or maybe it will support custom plugins? Although they would probably say it in the video.

I doubt they would say it in the video honestly -- HTML5 support is hardly a selling point to your Average Joe, so I'm surprised it got a mention at all, forget the details. The Construct 2 community isn't exactly the niche market Nintendo's trying to reach after all. SullyTheStrange2012-09-19 19:56:49
