Adobe Insists Flash Will Survive HTML 5
Written by Daniel

Google insists open Web standards will win the day, but Adobe Flash remains the de facto platform for rich Internet applications.

At Google (NSDQ: GOOG)'s developer conference last month, VP of engineering Vic Gundotra declared that "the Web has won" and suggested that emerging open Web standards such as HTML 5 have become the preferred platform to create Web applications, even graphically rich ones. [Front page...]

I'm sure Flash will continue to survive because it has such a huge impact on media and web interaction. I read some articles on HTML 5 and they are developing ways to draw and animate with vector lines just like Flash. This will be cool because you won't need flash to create simple button animations or crisp custom fonts, etc. The questions is, will the HTML 5 developing programs be as easy to use as Flash when it comes to drawing vector?
It may take a while for these programs to be as flexible as Flash and compatible with all multi-media formats.
Unless Google figures out a way to make their bots scan through flash code, HTML 5 will take over for Search Engine Optimization. Google bots can only scan the CSS & HTML code on each webpage and has to ignore flash formats. The competitive search engine websites have to minimize flash so they can increase their search results.
So if HTML 5 can draw vector images, play audio/video, create interactive media and be optimized for search content... it will take over

There are university degrees built around flash here. They might be a bit pissed if it goes the way of the dinosaur.

I wouldn't worry too much about it for now...
Flash is so flexible and has its own programming language that by the time HTML 5 is the standard, I'm sure adobe will have developed something completely new.
HTML used to be the standard but fell short with flexibility so CSS & PHP came along....
It will happen again

Thanks for the mini tutorial! ":O}

ah, well...
I'm not a Flash pro, but I love creating interactive content with sweet animation and small file sizes! I've yet to see any program be so effective and quick to produce presentations at the same level...
