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.

You didn't really read the article, did you?

Yes I did, (and re-did, and I still think the same).

The article is squarely centered on video performance, it states that "common wisdom shows signs of serious breakage", it insists that "the deciding factors on Flash performance is most certainly the availability of hardware acceleration", it devotes one short paragraph to say that comparing the scripting side is difficult, tells nothing about web apps or improved script execution engines.

Sorry, but I do not think this was one of your most insightful articles.
