In the year 2010, Steve Jobs said in Apple.com “Flash was created during the PC era – for PCs and mice…. But the mobile era is about low power devices, touch interfaces and open web standards – all areas where Flash falls short”.
Now Facebook has announced that ‘Facebook’s website uses HTML5 instead of Flash for all videos’. Adobe has said that they will continue with Flash for the games.
The possible reasons for switching to ‘HTML5 video’ from ‘Flash video’ may be that HTML 5 dont consume much resource and so loads faster and consumes less battery.
Is it the End of Adobe Flash?
