Web vs Apps: The Battle Rages On

eFront

The Web was the undisputed king, and with the advent of AJAX and modern CSS, future software was going to be written for the browser. A year earlier, Joel Spolsky, who had helped create Visual Basic and was a project manager for Excel, had written an article saying that Microsoft had lost the API war, and that the Web makes the operating system irrelevant. In the beginning it wasn’t much of a threat to the web. And the web is, well, not as good in mobile.

Adobe AIR & Flash Player 10.1– How it Can Benefit Mobile Learning

Upside Learning

Due to this (and some other reasons like processor capability, device features, etc), not all devices support Flash – neither within the web-browser nor outside of it. Apple’s decision of excluding Flash on their devices has resulted in some disappointment within our team and many others around the world. At some point one would justify Apple’s standoff against Flash on their handheld devices, and advocate open-web culture of HTML5 or alike.

An Overview of HTML5

Integrated Learnings

Apple's recent refusal to support Flash is the latest of many headaches web developers have had to endure as the web has matured but standards have been slow to respond. Apple is stopping support for Flash on the premise that HTML5 can solve all the development challenges that previously could only be solved through Flash. Standardizing these headaches so that web development is more consistant across all web-based devices is the goal of HTML5.

The Web without Flash is getting closer. A general movement of Flash to HTML5 conversion has changed the fabric of the Web.
