Mozilla VP says Flash is going away

Posted on Wednesday, March 16 2011 @ 01:30:02 CET by

Mozilla VP of products Jay Sullivan told Fast Company that HTML5 will allow web users to escape "plug-in prison", and that it also means that Flash is going to become irrelevant in the long run.
Sullivan is gung-ho about HTML5, which has become a major selling point of Firefox 4, the browser's latest iteration set launch in the coming weeks. That's great news for Firefox's 450 million users, but it's not so positive for Adobe, which could see one of its premiere products become irrelevant. So is Flash going away?

"I think so in the long run," Sullivan says. "A lot of it has to do with HTML5. With Firefox 4, Internet Explorer 9, and Chrome, to the extent that we provide functionality in enough browsers, then the developers will switch over to HTML5, especially in mobile, where you can't have Flash popping up on every page just to do some little animation. The idea that you'd have to embed an entire instance of the Flash player just to play a 30 second audio clip? It's crazy."
