The company recently released its own HTML5 video player, and Adobe Illustrator and Dreamweaver CS5 now contain a number of new HTML5 export tools. Now it seems Flash might be joining the party. At Adobe's MAX conference this week, Adobe engineer Rik Cabanier showed of a demo of tool that converts Flash animations to HTML5 (well, technically it looks like a combination of HTML5, CSS and images)."

Couldn't they just expand their efforts in making flash capable of playing Youtube videos without using 100% CPU usage, or not having badly scripted flash adverts that kill your browser?

Or is Flash totally broken?

I know, shooting fish/kicking a man when he's down and all that..

Well, now that the W3C and the WaSP have decided to do The Right Thing (tm) by advising that web browsers become even more bloated, to the point where they reach the feature set and proven security of Flash, SWF is going to become less relevant as time passes.

The Flash IDE is here to stay for some times, on the other hand, since it's exactly what a lot of web app developers look for.

(PS : About flash hogging your CPU and crashing, have you tried 10.1 ? On youtube, I get 10-15% CPU usage, even in full screen, and if I remember well I got some serious improvements by switching to the beta when I was on Linux...)
