Apple Promotes iPad-Ready' Websites Ditching Flash

Friday Apr 2nd 2010 by Staff

The company fires another shot in its ongoing battle against Flash.

Wired: It's no secret that Apple doesn't like Flash: neither the iPhone or the iPad support the Adobe technology. Now the company has published a list of "iPad-Ready" Web sites, which support “the latest web standards — including HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript.” And of course, those sites also don't use Flash.

While industry watchers applaud Apple's embrace of HTML5, most don't believe the wholesale dismissal of Flash is necessary. “Not to be overly critical of Apple — anyone pushing for open web standards deserves kudos — but the company seems more deeply concerned with digging Flash’s grave than it does with promoting semantic markup,” says Webmonkey's Michael Calore.
