If that's is the schedule, nothing makes sense.

Lazarus allows you to write applications with several common widgets.
Now html+javascript has become very common (more than cocoa, for
example), so it is a good idea to think of it.

I don't want to use Lazarus because it is the last defender of "Native
controls" against the evil "web-controls". I want to use Lazarus because
I want to use a powerful language like Pascal in the backend and a
framework with a RAD that allows me write GUI interfaces quickly.
