When Apple recently unveiled the iPad there were a lot of people frustrated with the lack of Flash, this is because Apple’s CEO Steve Jobs is backing HTML5 instead of flash.
Another Apple device which does not support flash is Apple’s iPhone (all generations), many people are now questioning whether this is in Apple’s best interests, or perhaps just a personal grudge against Flash from Jobs.
Jobs believes that Adobe’s Flash is buggy and he feels that Flashmakers are lazy, however apparently 85% of top websites are said to use Flash.
Personally I feel that Apple should support Flash until HTML 5 really becomes a widely-used standard, I believe that Jobs’ decision is now more ‘out of principle’ then a decision which has Apple’s best interests in mind.
Do you think Apple should support Flash?
