Adobe abbandona Flash per dedicarsi a HTML5 09.11.11

E così alla fine Adobe ha deciso di gettare ufficialmente la spugna con Flash sui dispositivi mobili.

Ancora una volta Apple detta una linea e il resto del mondo insegue, non senza un qualche ritardo.

Our future work with Flash on mobile devices will be focused on enabling Flash developers to package native apps with Adobe AIR for all the major app stores. We will no longer adapt Flash Player for mobile devices to new browser, OS version or device configurations. Some of our source code licensees may opt to continue working on and releasing their own implementations. We will continue to support the current Android and PlayBook configurations with critical bug fixes and security updates.

Anche Microsoft volta le spalle a Flash 15.09.11

La versione con interfaccia Metro di Internet Explorer 10, sul prossimo Windows 8, sarà plug-in free il che significa niente Flash e pieno supporto a HTML5.
La versione desktop manterrà invece la retrocompatibilità con il plugin.

Microsoft segue la via già tracciata da Apple per un web più usabile, veloce e che richieda meno risorse.

Running Metro style IE plug-in free improves battery life as well as security, reliability, and privacy for consumers. Plug-ins were important early on in the web’s history. But the web has come a long way since then with HTML5. Providing compatibility with legacy plug-in technologies would detract from, rather than improve, the consumer experience of browsing in the Metro style UI.

Flash was created during the PC era – for PCs and mice. Flash is a successful business for Adobe, and we can understand why they want to push it beyond PCs. But the mobile era is about low power devices, touch interfaces and open web standards – all areas where Flash falls short.

Convertire Flash in HTML5 08.03.11

Adobe ha rilasciato un tool che permette la conversione di Flash in HTML5.
Il convertitore, nome in codice Wallaby, è ancora in versione beta di conseguenza non supporta ancora tutte le funzionalità previste da Flash Professional.

Il nuovo codice di YouTube per inserire video sul proprio sito 23.01.11

YouTube modifica il codice per incorporare i video sulle pagine web, utilizzando iframe al posto di object.
La nuova stringa dovrebbe permettere una maggiore compatibilità verso quei dispositivi che mal digeriscono Flash - avete presente iPhone e soci? - consentendo un graduale passaggio verso HTML5.

La lettera di Adobe

Continua la sfida tra Adobe e Apple sul futuro di Flash e il rapporto con internet e la libertà di scelta degli utenti.
A questo giro è Adobe a pubblicare una lettera, intitolata "Le nostre idee sul libero mercato", in cui Chuck Geschke e John Warnock ribattono la loro verità alle accuse lanciate da Steve Jobs.

Flash secondo Steve Jobs 29.04.10

L'attacco frontale firmato da Steve Jobs contro Flash sul sito di Apple.
Una porta sbattuta in faccia ad Adobe.

Flash was created during the PC era – for PCs and mice. Flash is a successful business for Adobe, and we can understand why they want to push it beyond PCs. But the mobile era is about low power devices, touch interfaces and open web standards – all areas where Flash falls short.

The avalanche of media outlets offering their content for Apple’s mobile devices demonstrates that Flash is no longer necessary to watch video or consume any kind of web content. And the 200,000 apps on Apple’s App Store proves that Flash isn’t necessary for tens of thousands of developers to create graphically rich applications, including games.

New open standards created in the mobile era, such as HTML5, will win on mobile devices (and PCs too). Perhaps Adobe should focus more on creating great HTML5 tools for the future, and less on criticizing Apple for leaving the past behind.

HTML 5 antagonista di Flash e Silverlight? 16.06.09

"HTML 5 is really the second coming of this Web stuff - of the Web," says Dion Almaer, co-founder of the Ajaxian Web site and co-director of developer tools at Mozilla. The specification boasts capabilities covering video and graphics on the Web, as well as a slew of APIs, Almaer notes.

HTML 5 technologies such as Canvas, for 2-D drawing on a Web page, are being promoted by heavyweights in the Internet space such as Apple, Google, and Mozilla. (Although Microsoft itself has given a thumbs-up to certain aspects of HTML 5, it has not backed Canvas.)

"HTML 5 features like Canvas, local storage, and Web Workers let us do more in the browser than ever before," says Ben Galbraith, also co-founder of the Ajaxian Web site and co-director of developer tools at Mozilla. Local storage enables users to work in a browser when a connection drops and Web Workers makes "next generation" applications incredibly responsive by pushing long-running tasks to the background, he says.

Web applications will become more fun, says Ian Fette, project manager at Google for the Chrome browser: "They're going to be faster and they're just going to provide overall a better user experience and make the distinction between online apps and desktop apps blurred."
