Adobe Flash vs HTML5 – For 4 Reasons HTML5 Are Favored

Since HTML5 attracted the world’s attention in 2010, the debate on the topic of Adobe Flash vs HTML5 has never ceased. Moreover, it seems that the battle of Adobe Flash vs HTML5 is unlikely to end in a short term. For one thing, Adobe Flash is still widely used as a necessity for online video watching and online gaming; for another, as an app exclusively designed to replace Adobe Flash, HTML5 is far less influential than one has expected. However, it is almost a certain thing that HTML5 will be the winner in this contest after Adobe Flash lost its last chance in Windows 8.

Why will an old application compatible to 99% web browsers like Adobe Flash lose to a new alternative only compatible to 40% web browsers like HTML5? Besides the defects of Adobe Flash, the advantages of HTML5 over Adobe Flash plays an important role in helping HTML5 to win the battle of Adobe Flash vs HTML5. After the popularization of HTML5, converting Adobe Flash to HTML5 will be a favored choice for all. Therefore, this post will show top four reasons that HTML5 is more favored.

1. Adobe Flash vs HTML5: Stability

Flash is not stable

One of the most severely criticized defects of Adobe Flash lies in its instability. Usually once Flash Player crashes, the whole web page or even the web browser ceases to work. It is annoying to be forced to restart the web browser while viewing some pages. However, due to the instability of Adobe Flash, users have to repeat the restarting process again and again. Though there are various ways to stop shockwave Flash from crashing, few can actually work.

To this extent, HTML5 is much more stable than Adobe Flash. As a markup language, HTML5 can work flawlessly with those supported web browsers. Even when something goes wrong with HTML5, it is the page instead of the web browser that crashes. Therefore, users just need to refresh the windows only. So who will want to use an application that will ruin the web browser when he has better choice?

2. Adobe Flash vs HTML5: Security

Flash is not secure

Security concern is a main reason that leads to the fall of Adobe Flash. In 2012 alone, there are 9 updates exclusively designed to fix those security vulnerabilities caused by Adobe Flash. Due to its compatibility, Adobe Flash not only brings system vulnerabilities to Mac systems but also to Windows systems like Windows 8. In this field, HTML5 does quite better. By using special HTML codes, HTML5 enables users to watch online videos without any applications installed, which significantly lower the risk of being attacked by hackers. Actually, better security is an important factor that HTML5 can win the battle of Adobe Flash vs HTML5.

3. Adobe Flash vs HTML5: Openness

The openness of HTLM5

Adobe Flash is a product exclusively owned and controlled by Adobe, making it inaccessible to most people. Moreover, as a blocked application, Adobe Flash may bring some unnecessary troubles to users. To make YouTube video play in Adobe Flash Player, those uploaded files will be embedded into a player to become a SWF file. Therefore when one wants to download YouTube video, he needs to find the real URL address of video and download it as a FLV file instead of a SWF file. Of course, in most cases, this can only be done with a professional YouTube Downloader.

However, things will not be that complicated with HTML5. As a language opening to all, users can not only know the HTML codes of the page but also find out the download URL address of the original video easily. No extra applications are required to help users manage YouTube downloading process.

4. Adobe Flash vs HTML5: Future

The popularity of HTLM5

Though Adobe Flash still plays an important role in the web arena, it is HTML5 who owns the future. In recent year, Adobe Flash has been excluded in the supporting list of more and more portable devices which makes room for the development of HTML5. In 2012 alone, Adobe Flash is rejected by The new iPad, Jelly Bean devices and iPhone 5. Moreover, a rejection from Windows 8 seems to be on the way. More importantly, Adobe even switched its attention from Adobe Flash to HTML5, marking the defeat of Adobe Flash in the contest against HTML5.

Contrary to Adobe Flash, HTML5 is getting more and more popular. YouTube is trying to replace Adobe Flash with HTML5; Apple bets on a future ruled by HTML5 and Adobe even debut Edge tools to promote the popularization of HTML5. Therefore, why use an outdated application instead of a promising application?
