    Beginning of the end for Flash

    Adobe says it now believes the alternative HTML 5 technology offers the "best solution" because it is "universally supported".
    Personally I'm quite glad about this really, seems Apple's insistence has paid off.

    Bye bye Flash!

    ...in September Microsoft also announced it would not support the product on the tablet interface of its upcoming Windows 8 browser.
    I think this tipped the balance. I think Flash will probably gradually disappear as web developers stop using it now.
