Adobe comes with a surprise – brings a Flash to HTML5 converter
Adobe – you never seize to amaze us. Adobe said a few months ago that they were working on some “HTML5 related ‘stuff’” but we didn’t knew what it was, now we do.
So, this is pretty surprising – Adobe is apparently adding ability to convert Flash to HTML5, crazy? Yes. Bad? Obviously not! Well at first thought it’s like Adobe is hitting its own foot by doing that, since this may actually cause flash to go extinct eventually. But at the 2nd thought, it makes sense – why? Because Adobe dosen’t earn from Flash, Adobe earns from the Creative Suite that developers use to make Flash, and soon they will use to convert Flash to HTML5 – so it’s more of a tool to make awesome HTML5 stuff.
See the video below to see how awesome this is in real.
Well so why is Adobe doing this? Because they have to stay in the market – think about it, today developers have to choose one – Flash or HTML5, both have there pros and cons, but Flash will never go extinct 100% cause it’s good at what it does, but HTML5 will eventually rise up – and Adobe dosen’t want to go bankrupt ofcourse. John Nack from Adobe explains this in one line:
Adobe lives or dies by its ability to help customers solve real problems.
Converting Flash to HTML5 creates a Win Win situation for Adobe, if Flash dies – Adobe is still in profit with a great tool to make HTML5 content. And it’s awesome for both, consumers and Adobe.
