HTML5 vs. Flash — the Case For Flash

snydeq writes “InfoWorld’s Peter Wayner offers 7 reasons why Web designers will remain loyal to Flash for rich Web content, despite ‘seductive’ new capabilities offered by HTML5. Sure, HTML5 aims to duplicate many of the features that were once the sole province of plug-ins (local disk storage, video display, better rendering, algorithmic drawing, and more) and has high-profile backers in Google and Apple, but as Wayner sees it, this fight is more about designers than it is about technocrats and programmers. And from its sub-pixel resolution, to its developer tools, to its ‘write once, play everywhere’ functionality, Flash has too much going for it to fall by the wayside. ‘The designers will make the final determination. As long as Flash and its cousins Flex and Shockwave remain the simplest tools for producing drop-dead gorgeous Websites, they’ll keep their place on the Internet.’”
