Adobe Drops Mobile Flash Player Development To Focus On HTML5
has decided to stop development of its flash player plugin for mobile browsers to shift its focus to HTML5 development and various other Adobe projects. There were several reason that Adobe's Mike Chambers
gave, in a blog post on his personal site, as to why Adobe has shifted its focus.
A couple of the main points focused on by Chambers were:
- Apple resolutely refused to adopt the technology on the iPhone or iPad. “No matter what we did, the Flash Player was not going to be available on Apple’s iOS anytime in the foreseeable future,” he says.
- While it will still be a while before HTML5 / CSS3 features have the same ubiquity as the Flash Player currently has, the trend is very clear. A lot of the things that you have done via Flash in the past, will increasingly be done via HTML5 and CSS3 directly in the browser.
- Users don’t consume content on mobile devices in the same way they do on desktop. Differences in screen sizes, latency from wireless networks and app stores made Flash less relevant on handheld devices.
- “Developing the Flash Player for mobile browsers has proven to require much more resources than we anticipated,” Chambers admits.
- Adobe wanted to shift more resources to HTML5, and dropping Flash for mobile frees them to do so.
Adobe's decision to stop development of mobile flash was an interesting one to us here at JASE. Obviously, in part, a response to the success of Apple's mobile devices without Flash incorporation, Adobe finally threw in the towel in their attempt to develop a cross platform mobile flash. Adobe will, however, look to continue to improve their Adobe AIR
platform and will look to push developers to that platform for mobile applications. Also, Adobe's shift of focus to the development of HTML5 was confirmation that HTML5 will be the future of development because of its easier integration with web browsers. HTML5 will eliminate the need for Flash as its features will be developed in the browser, which in turn will make mobile application development
easier, in that developers will not have to cater to individual platforms.What do you think about Apple's steadfast decision to not incorporate Flash into its iOS? How will HTML5 help web development? Leave us a comment below and let us know, we'd like to hear your thoughts.image credit: Cyber Hades on flickr
