      HTML5 Vs Flash

      HTML5 and Flash are two technologies that are getting measured constantly.HTML5 vs Flash is like comparing oranges and apples. Here we start to compare.

      html 5

      HTML5 is a markup language used for structuring and presenting content on the World Wide Web. It is the fifth and current version of the HTML standard. In 2004, development began on HTML5 in the Web Hypertext Application Technology Working Group (WHATWG), which became a joint deliverable with the W3C in 2008, and completed and standardized on 28 October 2014.In HTML5 Web GL (Web Graphics Library) is used to create 3D animation in HTML, is a JavaScript API for rendering 3D graphics within any compatible web browser without the use of plug-ins


      Flash is a multimedia software platform used for production of animations, browser games, rich Internet applications, desktop applications, mobile applications and mobile games. Flash displays text, vector graphics and raster graphics to provide animations, video games and applications. It allows streaming of audio and video, and can capture mouse, keyboard, microphone and camera input. In 2016, Adobe changed Flash’s name to Adobe Animate. This was because the Flash Player had a bad reputation, and they wanted to separate it from that.

      HTML5 natively supports on demand and live video streaming sources. Adobe Animate, on the other hand, has been the only way to let rich audio and video content run on the web for more than a decade. The HTML5 canvas element is used to draw graphics, on the fly, via JavaScript. The canvas element is only a container for graphics. The HTML5 video element is used to play videos on browser.

      The HTML5 technology comes from the open source sector of HTML. It has some advantages over Flash without any doubt. The biggest is in the mobile space as device providers have opted for HTML5 as the future.

      Flash Player 24 (Adobe Flash Animate CC) currently has 81% audience penetration.

      Web GL is currently supported by over 60% mobile browsers and about 80% web browsers

      Compiling SWFs means that flash experiences can be shared and re-hosted as a single file. This has been extremely important for Flash games.

      The nature of HTML5 means that it’s base assets are loaded as individual files. Hosting of HTML5 sites therefore needs more careful file management.

      The Adobe Flash Animate is a huge benefit to designers and newer developers. It has a huge user base and as such an equally large community.

      HTML5 authoring tools are relatively in their infancy with no clear ‘Industry Standard’. Here flash beats HTML5.

      99% of desktop browser support the flash player. 82% of browsers supports the HTML5 canvas element. 97% of mobile browser supports HTML5 and 0% of mobile browser supports flash. As current era of Mobile Technology Flash has been falls down against HTML5.

      They’re both just tools, and we love ALL our tools! Taking sides with tech gets you nowhere fast.

      Flash is a rich resource with unrivalled commun support. We love using Flash! HTML5 has the hot ticket In the form of Its increasingly robust mobile browser support. And we love that too!
