Adobe launches tool for HTML5 disear

Adobe has released the free trial version of Edge, a tool to create animations with the HTML5 standard, Javascript and CSS. HTML5 is regarded as the great rival to Flash, Adobe resource for these purposes. The tool is available from Adobe and the lab will not have a commercial release until next year.

Miquel Bada, Adobe Spain, has told this newspaper that the company's position has never been to deal with HTML5. In fact, its tool for Dreamweaver web design can work with HTML5. "Our purpose is to give every facility to the designers. HTML5 is a standard not yet approved, but once you think it will be defined more limited interactivity to Flash, Flash will be like ten years ago, but that does not that it is not a valid standard and Adobe provides tools for it to work with him.

" In fact, Adobe has a resource Wallby allows you to create content in Flash and then export them to run on platforms that do not support this format. Apple is the great enemy of Flash and Steve Jobs has said on more than one occasion that Adobe should move to HTML5. Bada believes that there is no war technology and the company that creates tools for the two alternatives.

Steve Jobs last year published a series of reflections which shelled the six reasons why your company rejects Flash to work on their devices (iPhone, iPod and iPhone). Flash is the "PC was not the phones," said Jobs. Flash is "the time of the mouse, no touch screens." Flash "is not open, such as HTML, CSS and Javascript." Flash, according to Jobs, neither "safe nor stable.

We know that is primarily responsible for the mistakes of Mac computers." Flash also "spends more battery." Flash is cross-platform "and Apple can not depend on third company in deciding when to provide tools to developers." Finally Jobs suggested to Adobe that focuses more on creating good tools based on HTML5 and stop criticizing Apple "for leaving the past behind." Less than 24 hours after the furious letter from Steve Jobs, Adobe said.

The statement, crisper, denied that the rejection of Apple it is only for Flash technology issues. That, they said, "is a smokescreen" and accused Apple of "locking consumers and creators."
