And yet people still use Flash.
Why? Because if you can imagine it, it's possible to make in Flash.
Tell me how HTML 5 Plans to accomplish THIS
Do I need to mention the legion of creative professionals whose work benefits from motion? Don't waste my time with that tweener animation crap that jQuery brings to the table for forms. It's not truly interactive.
Google is starting to index it. Flash now supports deep-linking. Bing doesn't, but who cares about Bing? Silverlight is a Hulu novelty.
Your, and Apple's mistake, is to continue to think Flash is a video codec.
If you use Flash correctly, it's a interactive movie in the form of a website that cannot be replicated by lesser, traditional technologies.
HTML5? Are you serious? I suppose you think 99% of users will be able to see CSS3 content tomorrow, too?
