Flash,Flex Vs HTML 5

Posted by Shardul Singh Bartwal on February 25, 2012

I was checking the HTML 5 with Java script,CSS 3 and Jquery around since last 4 months.Also was keeping my eyes on this since 2008,but never get inspired to do anything.Now also I found that HTML 5 is still in the state where Flash was 7 to 8 years back.HTML 5 can replace maximum of simple banners and animated advertisements which were created using the flash.For that also the development cost is going to increase and quality will be not up to that extent as the Flash has provided long earlier.

But for the Audio/Video Streaming,Image manipulation,Gaming and Enterprise applications HTML5 needs to take still around 10 years.Also currently I don’t found any thing as impressive as AMF for the Client Server communication over the internet.The reason for this is simply that HTML 5 is also a markup language.You can check the link below,you will realize where the HTML 5 is in reality:-

So the only thing which I will like to say is that Flash and HTML 5 will be needed in the same way
as earlier they were used together on the web.If you will try to replace Flash by HTML 5 for the small
purpose then you have to pay lot more then flash.And if you will be trying to create the Enterprise Application with HTML 5 then I think you will come back to Flex one day.Flash player is ruling since last 15 plus years,its not so simple to replace that.

Keep Rocking………..
