Flash And HTML

Is there really a war between Flash and HTML? Not according to John Dowdell. He claims that Adobe is all about enabling creativity by providing the platforms in which to do so.

War or no war (there really isn't one), Flash is here to stay for the time being. I for one try to avoid it when building web applications. But that stems back to when you might actually have to install Flash on a browser in order for your user interface to even work. These days, you are less likely to find a browser that doesn't have Flash installed on it.

Don't get over excited about the future of whether or not the web browser experience is going to belong to Adobe. The fact is that they already own a big chunk of it. Just keep that thought on the back-burner.
