Opera: Flash not good for mobile browsers

Posted on Saturday, June 16 2007 @ 01:30:22 CEST by

Opera says it will add video capability directly into its web browser to replace the Adobe Flash plugin. The firm says Flash requires too much processor power and eats more battery life than a native application.
Tomita includes the Apple iPhone as part of a long-term trend that will see more powerful browsers becoming the de facto operating system or environment on mobile devices.

Although not yet available, Apple already has its first application on the Web from Webware and a site for creating iPhone widgets from Widgity.

A move away from Flash and its expensive authoring tool could also lower developer costs, especially if over time an open source standard becomes available.

For example, a similar move was made years ago by most of the cell phone industry when it deployed SVG [Scalable Vector Graphics], an open W3C standard language for describing two-dimensional and graphical applications in XML in mobile browsers rather than using available proprietary solutions.
