Adobe Abandons Mobile Flash, Backs HTML5
Mobile web designers now must fully supports HTML5 as Adobe has confirmed that it is abandoning development of its Flash player plug-in for mobile web design and browsers. Referencing Apple’s rejection of Flash support on its iOS devices and Steve Job’s prediction that Adobe will soon cease flash development Adobe VP Danny Winokur stated,“HTML5 is now universally supported on major mobile devices, in some cases exclusively.”
The once dominant desktop platform now hangs its hat as Adobe announces that they are cutting 750 jobs as they completely abandon the project, a move Adobe is calling “corporate restructuring.”
