Document Sharing Site Scribd Ditches Flash, Uses HTML5
Scribd has been using Flash for three years now, but its CTO Jared Friedman said it was time for a change, stating "After three years of building on Flash, Scribd is starting over and building everything on HTML5."
Reasons for the change include a poor user experience with Scribd due to the fact that the content is wrapped in a separate application, duplicating many functions that browsers already possess. Flash still has advantages over HTML 5, as many developers point out, especially in the area of authoring and programming environments--so far there aren't any that are comparable to Adobe Flash.
