HTML 5, the new Adobe Flash on Mobile Devices
Adobe has backed out and will no longer make improvements on Flash for mobile devices. Reason? HTML5 replaces Flash! So now, Apple has won, and Adobe, well... no longer making Flash for mobile devices. From the beginning Apple has said they will not be incorporating Flash into iOS devices because HTML5 can easily replace it and will handle memory and CPU problems better. Flash has can have a significant impact on the RAM of a mobile device and will probably put a huge load on the CPU performance. Although these things are quite small for a PC, this will definitely drain the battery of a mobile device fast!
Adobe promises to continue patching critical security issues and bugs but will no longer make improvements to Flash for mobile devices as a movement to push website designers and developers towards the use HTML5 for new things.
