Ever since Apple announced that they are not supporting Flash for their ISO devices developers are rushing towards HTML5 due to its cross platform availability. This might be a bad news for Flash developers and users but its overall good news for us which means that if all web browsers adopt HTML5 technology fully than we don’t have to install third party software’s and plugins in order to get full use of web experience. Also it eliminates the risk of viruses and spywares which were easily embedded into your system with the help of third party plugins like Adobe Flash etc. Now you don’t have to embed media player or flash support in your blog in order to play movies or animations. Just write code in HTML5 and create animations with the help of CSS3 and Java Script code and you are done.
