Occupy HTML Movement Tries To Occupy HTML5

Another day, another movement.

It looks like some folks are not happy with the Occupy Flash movement that has been going on and decided to create one of their own.

What is it all about?

Occupy HTML movement organizers state that developers should not chose one technology over another, instead, they could be using both HTML5 and Flash when it’s appropriate.

When it comes to Adobe Flash crashes and battery drain, organizers are pretty honest, saying that it is “supported by all major desktop browsers. It’s stable when used properly. If not, it crashes a lot, just like every other technology. It requires constant security updates, just like every other web technology. It doesn’t work well on most mobile devices, and for good reasons. It’s a content plugin, developed during the era of closed standards and unilateral corporate control of web technology. Websites that rely on Flash can present a unique (and often unparalleled) experience for the massive percentage of users on a desktop browser. Flash powers some amazing experiences that work consistently across all of the major browsers in a way that cannot be replicated without Flash technology.”

That’s about it.

    You should ignore this, these movements make no sense and aren’t even funny at all…
