How HTML 5 won

Tags: HTML 5, Flash

Interesting read on why HTML 5 won't kill flash even though it's more efficient and doesn't take as much resources. This argument goes against the iPad, because it will only be able to support HTML 5.

very interesting read. personally i always hoped html5 would take off but it will just end up being like xml (adopted but not globally) and xhtml(which you can find elements of it in html but it never really became the standard too)

as for the ipad, ipod touch and iphone not supporting flash, it's a power play on apple's part. they want to move away from flash as much as possible because they have a stake in .h264. that and flash is absolutely terrible on macs, and on the older ppc macs it's even worse.

a simple <video> tag would be a welcome change, believe me.

A lot of the features of HTML 5 are interesting, but Hollywood will never go for it because of the lack of DRM. People will be forced to buy anything video from the apple store instead of being able to vide videos on hulu or other video viewing services. The only thing i see this working with is user created content on youtube, but you also can't add any adds to the video.

one can always hope. i mean certain aspects of xhtml are not required but are encouraged with designers now. so it has made an impact on the industry in some way. let's hope the same can be said for html 5.

though i am a little worried about the movement to AJAX and javascript intensive applications online. i absolutely abhor javascript, and flash's action script is very similar to javascript.

i think the best solution would be to have a well developed and maintained main layer (html 5) with other plugins as well, flash and javascipt and whatnot.

flash is so embedded into the web at this point it will take a miracle to change that.
