Hi all,

This week's poll is about news that Adobe will stop supporting Flash on the Android in favor of HTML5. Discuss here if you think this is a good move on Adobe's part, and, if you like, the poll results themselves.

Thanks!
Justin

Not sure if this is good or bad? Bad if everyone keeps developing stuff for flash and not HTML5 I guess. I suppose that's not very likely tho, and android is getting pretty massive for people to NOT write programs for.

If all browsers supported WEBM, Video Tag and h.264, then Flash would be redundant.

Also creating a cross platform Browser without Flash Support is easier, therefore many devices will have video capabilities.

The downside is many web sites will have to be re-written, and older browsers on older operating systems will be next to useless !

Seems like Apple are Google is leading the changes, especially as Youtube have many HTML5 videos:

ARM Devices the future. Windows have accepted the fact!

"Seems like Apple are Google is leading the changes...

And I suspect that will be the case for the foreseeable future, given that mobile browsing apparently taking off:

This is a dumb question but why are they doing it? This is not related to the issue directly but I have Adobe programs on my computer but it takes up a lot of space. I wonder why they could not create it to be a smaller program. I had been looking for Adobe Flash Player I think a few months ago and I could not find it on the Android Market and I went to their website on the phone and I could not download it.

Some of the apps like Crackle require Adobe Flash Player. Any chance that customers have a say about this issue?

For me this is one of those polls that requires an "I don't give a **** " response be added to the list as my idea of "mobile browsing" is looking both ways before pulling out in traffic.
