The writing is on the wall. Adobe has abandoned Mobile Flash in favor of HTML5. It is just a matter of time before the Adobe Flash developers switch over to producing HTML5 instead of Flash as a matter of course. With the move to mobile devices, the dominance of Flash on the desktop will simply not matter anymore.
I’ve been in this profession for 31 years. I’ve seen a long list of technologies rise up to be one of the “top technologies” in a space, only to be relegated within a few years to the dust heap. There is always a tipping point. Apple pushed, and now, Adobe tipped.
It is time to add Flash to the list.
