HTML5 Standard Threatened by Adobe?
Adobe's Larry Masinter stated that they have no intention of trying to stop HTML5, and that Adobe isn't trying to keep the advantage for Flash. He believes that Adobe's formal objection was misunderstood, and was meant to be a "simple, procedural move."
The company has been on the minds of developers since the release of the iPad, with developers squaring up on both sides of the fence about the iPad and iPhone's lack of support for Flash. Apple insists that HTML5 can do anything that Flash can do, but better. Adobe says when you think of the web, you think of Flash, an essential ingredient for getting the most out of the web experience. Can't we just get along?
