FLASH OUT. HTML5 IN!

 

HTML 5 Versus Flash – is there even a reason to compare them? You’ve heard it everywhere, for years – HTML5 is the new Flash!  But what exactly is HTML 5, and why is its existence such a huge deal to the Internet? To start, let’s talk about Flash. Flash is a platform created by Adobe to introduce rich applications to the web – meaning your applications move, and become interactive. Flash pretty much made the internet fun, and in a sense, paved the way for the interactive elements on the internet as we know them today.

There are some sweeping concerns about Flash, though like its accessibility to consumers, its unavailability on iOS devices including iPhones and iPads, and the continual questioning of its relevancy makes Flash seem like it’s going to disappear, well, in a Flash. Then walks in HTML5 with more specific markup, and new interactive web features, and a boom in popularity – 34% of the top 100 websites in the world were developing in HTML5.

The fact that Adobe quietly removed flash player from Google’s Play Store has left Web developers pondering whether to support Flash at all.

The retreat comes five years after the introduction of the iPhone, the device which thwarted Flash’s mobile ambitions, almost even before they began.

That Adobe would make such an announcement nearly five years to the day that the first iPhone was sold is kind of funny

As new devices can no longer access Flash, developers are turning to HTML5, JAVAScript and alternate solutions for the next generation mobile web users. With platform support as already a challenge for mobile app developers, they are finding cross-platform support of open source HTML5 more promising.

Thus the legacy of Steve Jobs debunking the trope of Flash being “open” as well as its ability to access the full web continues.

So what next for Android’s “full web experience”? Well, with the era of Flash drawing to a close, even though this could mean an extensive and expensive overhaul for organizations with heavy investments in Flash, but in order to succeed in the mobile web market, redevelopment in HTML5 is what big gaming companies like Zynga are opting.

    I’ve been browsing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be a lot more useful than ever before.
