It’s official, Flash is dead. Well, not really, but it’s pretty much dead to anyone who has a tablet or smartphone. Adobe just confirmed that they are giving up on Flash mobile, and instead focusing on HTML5. They will still do maintenance releases, but they will no longer be developing it. Steve Jobs was right, Flash doesn’t belong on mobile devices, even Adobe thinks so now.
HTML5 is another story, it’s still not official but everyone seems to be using it. I guess it’s alright since it’s mostly the same as HTML4, just with some new functionality. What I really don’t understand are those who want to redo something that works and replace it with hacks so that it’s “Web 2.0”, or is it “Web 3.0” now?
