Flash based websites are created with lotta contemplations and planning. One simply cannot start a flash based web site without analysing the target audience. It is really surprising to know there are hundreds of users who have no idea about flash.Ask youtube bug report system . Ppl complain you tube is not working without installing flash. Though flash doesn give one complete independence . Its users responsibility or rather capability to install flash in his/her system.Hence the complete solution is missing.
One might ask why doesn’t Browsers come with inbuilt flash . Well i guess we need to wait for adobe to give the go ahead for that. Recently apple release I-Pad which doesn support flash. That raised the whole question of “Why make a Internet device without flash ? Well the answer is quite simple they need not . Why ? because flash doesn necessarily have to define the future of Internet. Face it Flash is third party application. Is apple killing flash ? Well that a whole different topic to be discussed !! Flash is powerful.No kidding. At wat cost is the debate.The ide for flash cs4 cost 700$.while that of developing html 5 app cost only brain power and a simple notepad. Html 5 is the new kid in the block.
Much about the power of html 5 is unknown to many web developer. With html 5 the most complex task can be done in minimal code. Abstractness is brought to a new level.The main drawback of html 5 is that it consumes lotta processing power. Is it just the systems i tried it on or a defect of html 5 .I’m not sure but the power of html 5 is very apparent. Web applications are dependant on technologies like .net,php,java,flex,flash .The best out there aren necessarily gonna be around in sometime. Just check out these example of html 5 presented in google summer code. I’m sure some of you will be amazed !
I just finished doing a simple app in html5 and trust me guys it is really neat.I have almost come to conclusion that html5 can give adobe run . Hold on. This doesn mean that flash is gonna disappear !! .For sometime till end of this year at least i ‘m sure flash based apps will continue to grow. But the indications are that Flash’s code-base has grown quite inflexible, if adobe doesn pick up pace and push new features the consequence may be bad for adobe.
