(The Hosting News) – Is Adobe showing a larger embrace of HTML5? That seems to be the case. Most recently, Adobe Systems launched a preview of Edge, a program that assists developers with interactive graphic design, supporting the HTML5 platform.
Functions of Edge include animation choreographing, graphic importation, composition creation, and more.
Adobe Flash had become internationally known for providing interactive graphics through various online sites. However, the emergence of HTML5 has provided Flash a challenge due to its larger-scale compatability with various browsers.
Despite the news, this isn’t Adobe’s first time working on HTML5 related stuff. However, it appears to be its largest venture with HTML5. Commenting on the matter in a press release, Adobe VP of Design and Web Engineering Paul Gubbay stated, “Over the last year Adobe has delivered on several significant HTML5 milestones including contributions to jQuery, submitting code to WebKit, and enhanced HTML5 output in Creative Suite® 5.5.”
“Now, with Adobe Edge, we’re taking our HTML5 tooling to a whole new level and look forward to getting some really useful feedback from the community over the next few months, as we refine the product,” he continued.
Meanwhile, it will be interesting to watch the future of Adobe’s Flash as the company appears to be signaling a larger embrace of other scripting formats.
