Firefox 15 and HTML5 Prove Steve Jobs Thoughts on Flash Dead Right
Steve Jobs is known for many traits and preferences, like his decision not to allow Adobe Flash to run on iOS devices such as the iPhone and the iPad. In his famous Thoughts on Flash response to Adobe criticism about the exclusion of Flash in Apple mobile devices, Steve Jobs wrote:
Adobe gave up the development of Flash for mobile devices, making Steve Jobs look like a winner. The truth is that Firefox 15 really shows why Steve Jobs was dead right for avoiding Flash on iOS devices such as the iPhone and iPad.
Remember what Steve Jobs wrote on Thoughts on Flash almost 2 years ago: “without relying on third party browser plug-ins”.
Now look at some of the new devices coming out and the kind of hardware they use. Multi-core GPUs, HD displays, fast cellular data for 3D graphics with beautiful textures wherever there is GSM coverage and platform agnostic devices aka HTML5 ready browsers.
