There is currently really no chance to have it running with HTML5 standalones.
Compared to 8.0 minimum file sizes (i.e. standalone.js and standalone.html.mem)
in 9.0 have increased in sum by a factor of 2 from 27 MByte to 55 MByte.
Stacks/resources will add to that. (You need 9.0 if you wish to use javascript.)
Even simple clocks with very basic animations have big problems to run in mobile
browsers.
