Internet & Networking "Even though its Flash technology is used as a punching bag by Web standards fans, Adobe has been building tools that embrace HTML5. 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)."

Well that could be because I'm mostly using the PPC Mac version, but if it's that good on Intel based stuff, why is it so hated?

Horrible performance on Linux and OSX (though it starts to get better), being proprietary, bugs crashing those browsers which don't sandbox plugins, silly updating system...

Do you want a detailed list or would it be enough to say that flash player has sucked on non-windows platform for a very long time and only started to get (much) better recently with 10 and 10.1 ? ^^
