[tech] Adobe Does HTML5 End Run Around Apple - With A Wallaby

2575.Now it looks like you may be able to view Flash on your iOS device.

Oh, not as such, of course.

Enter that amazing new thing, HTML5 - HTML that people are actually doing animation and video games in. The new little beast from Adobe - codenamed Wallaby - will take your Flash file and break it down into HTML5, CSS, JavaScript - Dreamweaver-licious components, all with a simple dragon-drop, so it is said.

PC Magazine has an article about it here: http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2381620,00.asp

… and Adobe Labs' download page for Wallaby is here: http://labs.adobe.com/technologies/wallaby/

It's in prerelease, so you'll probably find out some stuffs in it.

There's been a lot of tests of developers creating similar content in Flash and HTML5 and the vast majority of them have HTML5 content consuming more CPU & more resources. With the main use case of this being banner ads, iOS users will soon be getting the over the top annoying animated, battery draining banners that they thought they were avoiding without Flash.
