Adobe Was Always Going To Do HTML5

Logo of Adobe Systems IncorporatedImage via WikipediaI am not at all surprised that Adobe is getting into HTML5. It never was Flash versus HTML5 for Adobe, even when Steve Jobs suggested it was so.

Verdict: The iPhone Is Not Open, Flash Is Not Cutting Edge
HTML 5 And Online Video

Also Mark Zuckerberg's response to Google Plus can not be Facebook News, it has to be HTML5. HTML5 is what will finally eat the iPhone's lunch.

Facebook's Next Major Breakthrough

The idea that you have to create one app for the iPhone and another for Android and a third one for Blackberry, and another for a Windows phone, not to say for the iPad, that is just weird.

ReadWriteWeb: Farewell Flash? Adobe Launches HTML5 Web Animations Tool "Adobe Edge"
will allow creative professionals to design animated Web content using Web standards like HTML5, CSS and JavaScript. Not Flash. ...... Aimed to coexist with Adobe Flash, not replace it, the Web design software is Adobe's big bet on how it will continue to solidify its position as a top player in the infrastructure of the modern Web, especially as the Web goes increasingly mobile. In this new mobile context, the Web has become a more hostile environment for Flash, which has no place on Apple mobile devices, and likely never will. ..... Flash will continue to push forward, and, as we have reported previously, it will focus on areas that HTML5 cannot yet address as well - like 3D gaming for example. ...... with HTML5 being a relatively new technology, it doesn't today deliver a consistent experience across the widest range of devices and browsers. For example, Windows XP, which even to Microsoft's own chagrin remains a fairly popular computer operating system, can only run up to Internet Explorer 8. That means it can't take advantage of the many major leaps in terms of HTML5 support introduced in IE 9. ....... Adobe claims it has been a strong player in HTML5, going back to April 2010, when it first began introducing support for the technology in its product line, including Dreamweaver, Illustrator, its Digital Publishing Suite and, more recently, its Flash-to-HTML5 conversion tool, Wallaby. ....... in the future, it plans to add more HTML5 features, including Canvas support, support for HTML5 Audio and Video tags, richer support for animating SVG graphics and more. ...... When a project is complete, it will work on modern Web browsers like those that run on Android, iOS, HP's webOS, the BlackBerry PlayBook, plus Firefox, Google Chrome, Safari and Internet Explorer 9. ...... "the biggest thing they have done so far." ..... showing that they can pivot nicely to new trends
Fast Company: Adobe's Edge HTML5 Web Tool Blazes A Trail To The Post-Flash Internet
its tool for web designers that allows moving, interactive graphics on a website using HTML5, not Flash ..... it's the tip of the iceberg ....... Adobe's readying itself for a post-Flash Internet. ..... Slick as it is, it's missing interactive functionality, the ability for Edge-created objects to react to user clicks and text inputs in the way that advanced Flash code does ...... the pre-release that enables animation, shortly followed by shapes, expressivity and coding (for truly clever behind-the-scenes website stuff), and then interactivity and graphics will arrive for testing in the public pre-beta before an expected "1.0" product in 2012. ...... a "working window" and a timeline. By clicking on objects in a web page, designers can then drag them to the timeline and apply effects on a timed basis, moving graphics around, rotating them, fading them in and out with certain speeds and timings. ....... enables users to add motion to existing HTML documents without hampering design integrity of CSS-based layouts ...... a future-facing toolset that utilizes much more open web standards ...... Content created with Edge is designed to work on modern browsers including those on Android, BlackBerry, Playbook, iOS, HP webOS, and other smartphone mobile devices as well as Firefox, Google Chrome, Safari, and Internet Explorer ..... Edge doesn't quite offer all that Flash does ...... Flash wasn't fully featured at first .... Adobe's tool is most likely to be the definitive one
