    Replace Flash with HTML5

    Was wondering, if any of you have moved to HTML5 from Flash, and where specifically do you think, we can replace Flash with HTML5. Has anyone downloaded HTML tools from Adobe yet, and what are your impressions on it

    Flash and HTML 5 are not the same thing. HTML 5 is just the next proposed standard from HTML 4.01. It will have a few new methods of implementing video without, hopefully, relying on anything Adobe. CSS 3 will go hand-in-hand with it. Opera is only browser that fully supports CSS 3.0 and most browsers provide some support for HTML 5 and CSS 3. Neither are released as recommended standards yet, but getting closer. Once IE 9 comes out, there should be a surge in upgrades for IE as it is great.

    HTML 5 is exciting because it will allow you to hardwire some modern stuff directly to the code.

    But it is nowhere near primetime yet.

    Let Google, Mozilla and the standards boards sort it out.

    You can go to sleep for six months on this one with no worries.

    Unless you are trying to be the first one on the block using it.

    Doesn't make sense to rush these guys either. The big triumph of HTML 4 was to get the stuff to actually
    consistently work across all major platforms. The last thing we need is another round of inconsistency.

    O.T.: The only "round of inconsistency" I see is the browser developers INSISTING on keeping backwards compatibility parsing of outdated and crappy web codes. I would love to see all the browsers adhere to the recommended standards without ANY backwards compatibility earlier than HTML 4.01 Strict and CSS 2.1. Never will happen as trillions of sloppy and crappy web pages will be broken and they don't want to be sued by large companies. :P End O.T.

    Most of those 'crappy' pages, as you call them, are working for the people who originally comissioned them. You've got to have backward compatibility. The goal for many who live in the real world isn't just to satisfy 'web standards', it's to sell products and exchange information.

    These so called 'web standards' have become almost a religion for some, as if cooked up in the temple of the great god, W3C. I agree with having standards of course but the web is about SO much more than just standards and standards are meaningless anyway, if the major web browsers don't all conform. A webpage isn't necessarily 'crappy' because it doesn't conform to them, even if it could benefit slightly from them. Webpages with older coding that still work perfectly well for their owners need to be supported.... so I also agree with keeping browsers backwardly compatible.

    What's done is done.

    Definition: Computer rage is a heightened physiological response with associated feelings of anger and frustration[1] resulting from using a computer or other complex electronic device. It may result in the physical assault of the computer or similar item.[2] Computer use often leads to verbal abuse and occasionally physical violence towards the object.[3] Computer rage may be caused by distress due to a hardware or software problem which the enraged person is unable to correct.
