YouTube announced this week that there will never be another preferred flash player as HTML5 has become the default player.
In my experiences, HTML5 is a lot laggier and less controllable than Flash. The creation of applications in Flash is worlds easier and the potential for creation is so much better with Adobe.
There will always be Flash games, applications and movies as long as the internet exists, but HTML5 will soon fade away into something the WWW considers “better”.
Sure the programming being more complex allows for some great potential for browser applications, but there’s never been any demand for something better than Flash because if there was, the solution sure wouldn’t be what YouTube is switching to.
Watching videos has never been more of a pain. Please be temporary, YouTube.
