Walled or not Walled…That is the Question

IEEE Spectrum has an excellent and very informative article about Facebook and Google’s different approaches to online games. Will Google be able to capture a portion of the massive social game user base on Facebook using their Chrome and Android platforms? From the article:

” In particular, Facebook is exploring the potential of Hypertext Markup Language 5, or HTML5, the latest version of the standard Web programming language. Ondrejka calls it “a potent platform for game development,” citing HTML5’s robust handling of video and audio. According to Facebook, more than 125 million people are already using HTML5-equipped browsers on their mobile phones. “
