HTML5 To Replace Adobe Flash

In August 2011 Adobe gave a public view of the future of web design, a view of HTML5.

HTML5 is a programming language that is the revised edition of its predecessor HTML4. HTML4 came out in 1997 and has worked successfully until Adobe started revising the language. The language contains support for video, audio, canvas, SVG and header objects.



The language is perfect for the World Wide Web according to most computing and programming experts. The W3C and WHATWG teams are working on the development of HTML5 with the XHTML 2.0 project postponed. However, though the language is under heavy development issues it will take time before it becomes available in beta.

HTML5 is a seeming competitor to Adobe Flash. Flash is a platform operating with the help of an object-oriented programming language called ActionScript, a version of the common JavaScript language. This platform allows users to create interfaces for the World Wide Web. The Adobe Flash is more common for use in the development web related applications.

The debate has come to life about HTML5 replacing Adobe Flash. People who are looking forward to something that will change Web browsing experience forever reside with HTML5. They want all the browsers and other internet related applications to start supporting HTML5 as soon as it comes out of its development stage. Whilst there are people, who believe that changing the common and widespread use of flash dependant websites and browsers will take a lot of time, nearly a decade. Most people want browsers to support both but this will take the browser giants like Mozilla and Opera a lot of time design the plug-ins for HTML5. Moreover, the use of HTML5 will make the experience of Web browsing much faster as more people want to be portable than use a stationary desktop computer.

It is clear that HTML5 will take over the Internet but it is not going to happen anytime soon.
