Apple has just published a new Page on it’s Website known as “HTML5 showcase” which is compatible with most of devices including iPad (WOW). They encourage developers to Use HTML5 instead of Flash. They show why Flash is no longer necessary by the Demos on the site.
As mentioned in the website, they don’t need Flash anymore on their Devices, in April Steve Jobs wrote some thoughts about Flash and why they don’t need it. Also they mentioned the following:
Standards aren’t add-ons to the web. They are the web.
This means that HTML5 is mature enough for wide adoption, and sites which require add-ons to display content are a thing of the past. In an obvious jab at Flash. [via Padgadget]
