Will it be, Bye bye Adobe Flash & Silverlight


Read about the HTML5 and CSS3 recently. Wow, its gonna be another big fight between HTML developers and Adobe Flash/Microsoft Silverlight. You can do plenty of stuff with HTML5. Before it was just unfair comparing/competing HTML and flash developers. Now it will be a real competition.

Good startup read here.
All latest version of big browsers like IE, Mozilla Firefox, Chrome, Safari and Opera are already supporting some HTML5 tags.

  • Microsoft IE (Internet Explorer) has a plan to support these CSS3 and HTML5. Test drive site – Good demo (should be browsed with a latest version of Google Chrome or Firefox)

Video tag - show inline MPEG-4 videos
SVG tag - draw/manipulate vector graphics
Drag and drop
