HTML 5 Often Not As Fast As Flash
With the current debate about HTML 5 vs. Flash, Adobe has been fighting to promote Flash technology. In April, Apple introduced a strict policy that denied developers the right to use third party technologies, including Flash, when developing applications for iOS devices. Last week Apple eased the restrictions, opening the door to third party software companies.
In spite of the debate, Adobe still plans to support the emerging HTML 5 standard, and said that HTML 5 could eventually beat Flash in different benchmark performance tests. They stressed that each platform has its merits, and each has a place in the future of the web.
