HTML5 On The Rise: No Longer Ahead Of Its Time [techcrunch.com]

Today marks the one-year anniversary of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) declaring the HTML5 standard complete, a significant milestone in the history of the Internet and web application development. In this past year, HTML5 adoption has gone into overdrive, with more and more companies moving to HTML5 to deliver rich cross-platform web applications. The most recent examples include Amazon, Facebook, Google and YouTube, which transitioned from Adobe’s Flash to HTML5. Why is that? And why now?

Wow, is it only one year? Seems like things have been moving that way before it was complete. HTML5 gives us new ways to achieve goals, including things we used to rely on Flash to supply. Happy Birthday HTML5! :)

The html5 bits and pieces have been out there for a while, but only last year did they (WC3) declare it "finished". It's still not finished, but has risen to the level of the new standard.

As for the rise of h5 video.... everyone wants to kill flash! I think even Adobe is about fed up with the extra work. :)
