realized i never really finished that point. and trust me this rant might not even do that haha.
flash and open languages will always have bad programmers and scripts. alot of the backlash ive seen from html5 fanboys has been because so and so website crashes their site all time.
the only time ive had any type of major issue is with the latest versions of chrome, it tends to act a little fishy. but sites like youtube? on my windows box AND my imac at work,html5 uses more cpu power than flash in both cases. it just pisses me off to no end hearing these people spout off how much better html5 is and how its the future.
its an open web standard, great, but before it becomes a literal standard in all browsers across all platforms, it will be 2015, which is impossible for any legit agency to plan to develop for. every client i have wants interaction that is standard and viewable on the highest number of browsers, and thats sitll going to be flash for a few years. and yes, u can do some great stuff in html5 and canvas, but by the time its standard then flash is going to be THAT much better.
people were giving adobe so much shit for not having hardware accelerated video on macs blah blah blah, well apple FINALLY opened up hardware level apis two weeks ago, and after 5 days adobe released the gala player beta, and shit is so nice. so both sides of this argument need to start playing better (yes there are plenty of flash fanboys too, im sure i sound like one) but i know that both will still exist for years to come.
and im sorry for your crashes, esp that screenshot in youtube cuz ive never ever had anything like that happen, just some bogus sites that have major memory issues and cause endless loops.
sorry if i got heated, long day at work today and alcohol never helps on a monday night.
i love you all because you ski. haha, stay classy.
