HTML 5 Versus Flash – is there are even a reason to compare them? You’ve heard it everywhere, for years – HTML5 is the new Flash! But what exactly is HTML 5, and why is its existence such a huge deal to the Internet? To start, lets talk about Flash. Flash is a platform created by Adobe to introduce rich applications to the web – meaning your applications move, and become interactive. Flash pretty much made the internet fun, and in a sense, paved the way for the interactive elements on the internet as we know them today. There are some sweeping concerns about flash, though like its accessibility to consumers, its inability to work smoothly on iOS devices, and the continual questioning of its relevancy makes Flash seem like it’s going to disappear, well, in a Flash. Then walks in HTML5 with more specific markup, and new interactive web features, and a boom in popularity – 34% of the top 100 websites in the world were developing in HTML5, but even thought it’s modernizing our web browsing use, it’s still so basic (it’s got nothing on Flash’s decade plus of development, and Flash is still better for those intensive processes like streaming video, and some interactive features). It seems like there’s no reason to give up the best of both worlds. Whether your like it, or not both Flash and HTML5 are here to stay for the time being. Although HTML5 is gaining popularity, you won’t see Flash surrendering its spot as a major web presence for a long time. HTML5 is gaining speed, while Flash is continuing to develop complex features. There’s no reason to compare. They’re both great in their own respects.
