Richer GUI than native VF

We have a large VF page that is essentially all Javascript.  It has a huge complex grid with expanding trees and such.  There is are a client of client-side actions processed.  Currently it is uses extjs (a big Javascript library).  Even though it's a VF page, it is essentially all Javascript using the data API to read and write data from SF.


We're considering partially or completely rewritting it.  The implementation is cumbersome to maintain and it also doesn't work with mobile devices like iPads and Android tablets.


I doubt we could ever do everything in the page in native VF.


I'm looking for suggestions for additional technologies we might use to re-write the page better.


I don't know enough about HTML5 yet to know if it can do it.  Anyone care to comment?


Anyone have any other ideas for what to consider?
