What browsers can support HTML 5 completely?

None. HTML 5 is far from "complete" so how could any browser support it completely?

The reason I was asking is that HTML5 won the war over Flash Player, at least on the mobile version:

One thing I like about HTML5 is its support of multiple video formats. Flash player only supports
FLV video well.

video is just one teeny tiny minuscule part of HTML 5. It just gets a lot of press.

How good is the current HTML5 mobile version? I do not think HTML4 has a mobile version

That doesn't make much sense. Mobile version of what?

Mobile devices only support a Flash Player lite, which does not support full version of Flex or Flash.
I was wondering if it is the same case for HTML5 engine in mobile devices.

I don't think you are really paying attention to the answers you are getting. Each mobile device is going to have its own implementation of HTML 5, if it has one at all. So, as already pointed out, it makes little sense to ask about HTML 5 implementations in mobile devices in general.

So function X in HTML 5 spec may be implemented by mobile device A, but may not by mobile device B?

That's what makes the retreat of Flash so....

I have recently started using Silverlight for LOB applications. Along with patterns like MVVM, Silverlight 4.0 i think is mature enough framework to have an Business app built, although I must admit it is high effort if you are not using RIA services.
Now I hear about HTML5 as the future of Rich UI development. How long before HTML5 is mature enough to build LOB apps? Will it have some sort of data binding framework for its controls?
I was hoping I do not have to worry about HTML5 for another couple of years

Silverlight is dead in the water. No new versions are going to be released. Even Adobe has stopped mobile flash development and has started pouring money into HTML5.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
