It's not the first time Adobe has been in fisticuffs with Apple: the companies have been duking it out ever since Steve Jobs began ridiculing Flash and touting its alleged-killer, HTML5. Today, in an interview with Fast Company, Adobe CTO Kevin Lynch answered critics who might say HTML5 is somehow more efficient than Flash."

I disabled the Flash plugin on my new 11" Macbook Air after a full charge and my battery life went from 5 hours before disabling to 6:30 after, so something is really going on here. I did this test 3 times with the same results on 2 different days. My battery life was much longer with the Flash plugin disabled. I performed this test on my old black Macbook and got similar results with an hour of extra battery life.
