Adobe finally admit Flash is dead with the new Adobe Edge
Adobe have announced the launch of a new tool called Adobe Edge, the HTML5 Web Motion and Interaction Design Tool.
The free download of the BETA version of the software will allow web designers to create animation in HTML5 and CSS3 as opposed to Flash.
Ever since Steve Jobs banned Flash from iOS there has been much debate over it’s future. Adobe always stuck by it’s product, but this is a turning point seeing the company covering all bases.
When it comes down to it though, HTML5 is a web standard and Flash is just a 3rd party platform. This statement alone guarantees that HTML5 will dominate Flash and wil be the the default for web based animation and any kind of intereactive content in the future.
Adobe Edge is being offered as a free preview download from Adobe’s Web site. Mr. Anders of Adobe said it was expected to be introduced to the public in 2012.
