Adobe today unveiled a new version of Flash in an effort to expand support for the popular technology beyond the traditional Internet to mobile phones, netbooks, set-top boxes and other connected consumer devices.
“Opera has joined in the argument over Flash, with the company telling TechRadar that they will support Flash for the time being, but that the company needs to start embracing web standards if it doesn’t want to come under constant attack,” Patrick Goss reports for TechRadar UK. “Opera’s product analyst Phillip Grønvold believes that support for Flash is critical at the current time, but that times are changing fast as HTML5 moves closer,” Goss reports. “‘Flash does have its purposes and will have its purposes, the same as [Microsoft's] Silverlight and others, especially for dynamic content,’ Grønvold said.

Adobe’s much-beleaguered Flash is about to take another hit and online documents are finally going to join the Web on a more equal footing.

Tomorrow, online document sharing site Scribd will start to ditch Flash across its tens of millions of uploaded documents and convert them all to native HTML5 Web pages.

Selon les informations d’AppleInsider , Apple utilise depuis bientôt un an son propre framework pour les applications Internet utilisées par son réseau de distribution grand public (programme One-to-One, système de réservation de l’iPhone, le service Concierge de réservation pour le Genius Bar). Gianduia permet de créer ces applications sans recourir à des plug-in Flash ou Silverlight au niveau du navigateur.
