Preview: Is Flash On Death Row?
What supposedly is going to kill Flash? It could be the animation, graphics and interactive capabilities of the upcoming HTML5 that will not require a plug-in.
However, some people argue that HTML 5 has nothing on Flash and can not give adequate results that Flash gives.
The debate is intense! Where do you stand on the subject?
Here are some of the this year’s SXSW interactive panels and speakers that will specifically deal with this topic:
- HTML 5 Accessibility (3/14 2:00) – What is the difference between video built in natively in the browser or provided through a Flash plugin? This event will answer that and discuss the accessibility of the new kid on the block HTML5. (Organized by Martin Kliehm of The Web Standards Project)
- HTML 5: Tales From The Development Trenches (3/13 3:30) – This event will show the ups and downs of HTML 5, commercial advantages to using it for businesses, and discuss if Flash will be obsolete. (Organized by Bruce Lawson of Opera Software ASA)
