Sometime ago, Adobe Evangelist, Dave McCallister has said, that Adobe is one of the most open companies that are active. Furthermore, Adobe CTO Kevin Lynch claimed that “Adobe supports HTML and its evolution”.
Well, this is no longer a case, as a member of HTML5 group, Ian Hickson said the opposite: “the latest publication of HTML5 is now blocked by Adobe, via an objection that has still not been made public (despite yesterday’s promise to make it so).”
Why would Adobe do that? As new HTML5 canvas element allows adding animation, navigation elements and other interactive content, it is a direct threat to Adobe’s Flash platform.
