Internet & Networking Another blow for Flash. As Adobe is stating that they will make the best tools for HTML5, another major website using Flash has announced they're switching over to HTML5. Scribd, which provides in-browser access to all sorts of documents and e-books uploaded by users, will ditch its Flash-based website in favour of a brand-new HTML5 version.

content filtering in all-html5 pages will be much more harder than now with flash


I can tell you now it's not. Try the Element Hiding Helper addon for AdBlock Plus. Click an element and you can hide it, or customise the CSS selector to target it.

HTML content gives us far more control over what content we see than any technology before it. You can veto anything and reshape anything according to tastes.

For example, see what I've done here: http://camendesign.com/art/if-i-designed-engadget. With Flash, it's all or nothing.
