Internet & Networking It is not a secret that Apple is showing resistance to supporting Adobe's flash on the iPhone and that their efforts to add new features to HTML/CSS is driven towards reducing their dependence on Flash. Going further in that direction, the new hardware accelerated 3D CSS visual effects proposed for standards inclusion will be supported in Snow Leopard's Safari (it is already available in the latest Webkit nighty builds). An new impressive demo of the technology is available at Charles Ying blog.

As a fairly frustrated developer (who does not like and does not use Flash or Silverlight), all I have to say is that if making a very simple translation will require as much code and hacks as a rounded button or a decent three-column layout, I am not going to use this.


How is it the fault of the technology if the development tools are cruddy? hopefully what we'll see as these open standards nibble away at Silverlight and Flash, that there will be development tools that'll rise to the occasion and make development easier.

Now, if you want to be a sadomasochist and code in vi, then go for it, but there will eventually be developer tools to make the whole exercise alot easier.
