Internet & Networking There's a bit of ruckus going on at the moment in the world of HTML5. A number of people are claiming that Adobe has blocked the latest publication of the HTML5 standard. However, after diving into the actual mailing list threads, it becomes obvious quite quickly that it's nothing but a misunderstanding. Update: Masinter replies: "No part of HTML5 is, or was ever, 'blocked' in the W3C HTML Working Group - not HTML5, not Canvas 2D Graphics, not Microdata, not Video - not by me, not by Adobe."

Flash has been a detestable framework for web development since its' inception.

It was slow, buggy, incompatible with almost any browser other than ie and netscape, costly to setup on a server, bandwidth intensive, obnoxiously used, and made sites inaccessible for the disabled.

What has changed in 10 years?

Well, the scourge has reached more platforms now? Oh, and it can make today's CPUs grind to a halt when playing a simple video, so I suppose ten years have made it more of a resource hog than before. Other than that, can't think of anything.
