Farewell Flash? Adobe Launches HTML5 Web Animations Tool “Adobe Edge”

I’ve occasionally taught a unit of Flash here or there, but I’m far more interested in HTML5. Interesting to see that Adobe sees HTML5 for the threat that it is to Flash.

Today, Adobe is launching a new tool called Adobe Edge which will allow creative professionals to design animated Web content using Web standards like HTML5, CSS and JavaScript. Not Flash.

Aimed to coexist with Adobe Flash, not replace it, the Web design software is Adobe’s big bet on how it will continue to solidify its position as a top player in the infrastructure of the modern Web, especially as the Web goes increasingly mobile. In this new mobile context, the Web has become a more hostile environment for Flash, which has no place on Apple mobile devices, and likely never will. –via Farewell Flash?
