I know FireMonkey is very good but why embarcadero does not use HTML5 instead it?
I think Microsoft is trying to add html5 to blend even I dont know why Microsoft used xaml !
please someone describe for me.

Another question is about webkit, all of us know MsInternet explorer has many problems even in last version and developrs use chromium, now In XE7 we have again IE for desktop and webkit for ios and android, why Embarcadero does not create one component for all of devices, of course I can use delphi chromium now but it has problems and I can not compile it for mobiles version, I want to make one delphi application and compile for desktop,IOS and Android without changing many codes.

thank you

With HTML, CSS, JavaScript you start from the scratch.
You cant reuse any existing Delphi coding.

Maybe the same reason.

Another question is about webkit, all of us know MsInternet explorer has
many problems even
in last version and developrs use chromium, now In XE7 we have again IE for
desktop and webkit for ios and android,
why Embarcadero does not create one component for all of devices, of course
I can use delphi
chromium now but it has problems and I can not compile it for mobiles
version, I want to make one
delphi application and compile for desktop,IOS and Android without changing
many codes.

I can imagine that this task is not easy.

Each platform has a different browser. TMS Software has a TTMSFMXWebBrowser component that supports all four platforms.

Would you please show me a demo? I can not find its demo.
I think embarcadero must build such a component.
