Web Faceoff: Adobe Flash vs. HTML5
Every week, we pit two web apps or companies against each other in our web faceoff series. In the past, we've put Android vs. iPhone, Digg vs. Reddit, and Windows 7 vs. Snow Leopard order to see which one was truly the people's choice.
This week, we're tweaking the competitors a bit. Over the last few weeks, you may have heard about a battle brewing between Adobe and Apple. It all started when Apple slyly revealed that the iPad would not support Flash.
This quickly broke out into a heated debate: Should we be abandoning Flash for HTML5, the new version of the web's mark-up language that can support video, audio and more? Steve Jobs certainly thinks so.
Now with more people chiming in, we think it's time to take the pulse of the people.
Which will eventually win out in the end: Adobe Flash or HTML5? Which is better for the future of the web? Do you think Apple has the muscle to take down Adobe's widely used plug-in?
