Benchmarks Common wisdom has it that Flash is a resource hog, and that HTML5 will prevent your processor from having to work really, really hard to show animations of videos. Well, a number of people have conducted benchmarks with the latest browsers and Flash betas, and common wisdom is starting to show serious signs of crackage.

I agree about the mass input aspect of HTML5 development. The comparison of Flash and HTML5 with benchmarks is a bit premature at this point as far as I'm concerned. Once HTML5 adoption is at a higher level, this will bring in more support and resources to the developers. Flash has had years of backing and time to grow into its dominating position. Even the walled-garden Silverlight has had a massive financial backbone to support its adoption.
