Well, it appears that our Flash-based problems with the G-Tablet may be…
- Getting better, or
- Stalled, or
- Becoming even worse.
Adobe has said that they will no longer develop their Flash player plugin for mobile browsers. Instead, they appear to have (finally) decided to support HTML5. When HTML5 is fully implemented on a web site, Flash is no longer required. The problem is that ALL web site owners will have to switch to HTML5 and use it rather than Flash. That will probably take a long time. From an article on ZDNet…
- Adobe is Stopping development on Flash Player for browsers on mobile.
Adobe is now focusing their development efforts on:
- Applications for mobile
- Expressive content on the desktop (in and out of browser)
- Increasing their investments in HTML5 in general
What is your take on the news? Is this better, or worse?
