5 Reasons Why You Must Drop Flash For Web
HTML5 is a recent version of HTML combined with innovation. Flash is one of the most popular platform for designing animated web elements and bring the page to life. Are you using Flash elements on your Web Page, Here are 5 reasons which might convince you to drop Flash.
Flash is long dead. It is basically viewed as an accessory in web designing while HTML is considered the standard of web. Apple recently decided to drop it’s support for Flash. Adobe declared this compatibility issue on it’s own official announcement and mentioned about the cross compatibility of HTML5. It is widely supported in multiple platforms like PCs, Mobile Phones and the latest descendants of PC, Tablets.
Search engines don’t have a sweet tooth for Flash elements. S.E Spiders can barely interpret the text from your flash element (because the final render is exported to your browser as a video file) which is a big thumbs down for SEO. While HTML5 provides a better pool of resources which have a positive impact on SEO like article tags e.t.c
I guess it would be a wise move to abandon eventually Flash and choose the innovation. I’ve already shifted to HTML5 even though re-designing was a pain because I target users from all platforms mostly handheld.
