I’ll be honest. I don’t think that flash has much of a chance. Recently Apple has made it a point to inform the world that they aren’t big fans of Flash and they don’t think that their customers care about it either. I was a bit surprised, but I got over it quickly, why? Because I don’t use flash. I don’t watch that many videos (and most are available in non-flash ways anyway), I don’t play flash games, and I hate flash based ads!
I know that there are other uses for flash, but I think those uses all have more elegant solutions. Of course Google is now best friends with flash, they’ve integrated it into Chrome and will integrate it into Android 2.2, but why should I care if there are other ways to do everything flash does. I’ll come right out and say that if an employer ever asks me to develop something in flash I’ll say, “Yes, sir.” and get to work, but I can’t imagine that will happen, I just don’t think that flash doesn’t have must application anymore. It’s had its day. If Flash wants to win the game, they need to change the game, I don’t see them doing that. Maybe they will in the future.
There are others who think so too, what are your thoughts?
