HTML 5 doesnt require a plug in, just up to date browser.

I can only imagine the Adobe rage if flash did become outmoded.

But hey, OpenGL as a viable platform for web developers? Quite nice. ^^

I would  not mind this taking off, but it won't most likely. Too many sites already use Flash, the new update looks pretty good and a good move to phones.

It will, mainly because of video. Flash wasn't made for video, watching video in Flash is a pain. Besides, if you're using an updated version of your browser chances are it already supports HTML5. No need for plugins.

Let's hope it handles Farmville well.

That web based game has been a pain for adobe flash users.

WTF? HTML 5 has the capability to play real games, and all you care about are shitty Facebook apps? :lol:

It's not what it did to me, it's what it did to everyone who uses that Facebook site... primarily pissing everyone off with updates and stuff. :lol:

Oh yeah, and it's also an advertising scam under the guise of innocent little game.

*stops playing it*... I like adverts. *continues to play it*

Actually I don't play it at all. I just like to pretend I do, makes me more sociable.

There are a lot better ways to be sociable than playing Farmville. For instance, you can round up some of your friends and be like, "Hey guys, let's go to the mall! Yay! ^___^". And then while you're there, you grab each other's arms and wander around giggling... it's a great way to bond!

But back on topic... I can't wait to see more examples of what HTML5 can do.
