The internet needs open standards, the rendering engines that can blaze through HTML5 will elevate the web browsing experience. Flash:RIP.
I am saying exactly that. Whilst I don't disagree with any of the comments here being critical of Flash (and as someone else said, I don't like my laptop sounding like a 747 on takoff when using a Flash site), the point I was making was that this is a forum of tech minded people who are in truth more likely to be bothered by things like that.
Most non-technical people I know, and that is most people I know, despite the fact I work in silicon valley, honesty wouldn't think to complain, as long as they can watch their YouTube videos etc.
For myself, I'd like to see Flash go, since open standards are better in the long term, but in the meantime, I'm glad I can watch YouTube videos somehow.
