Well here we are Webbies our first post of 2012. Sorry we have been so quiet this year but our Development team are hard at work creating some great new features.
As you may know HTML5 is becoming a more prominent feature in Web Development as of late and we here at Webeden always like to move with the times. With Apple making it very public that it does not and will not support flash on it’s iOS devices (iPad, iPhone and iPod) we felt the need to act, and act we have.
Already we have put in place HTML mobile version of all our sites, so any users that visit our sites using a device that does not support flash will be directed to the correct version. We feel we need to go even further with this, so have locked away the Development team until they have completed the task in hand.
We have decided to make your ENTIRE site into HTML5, this means that you will have the ability to show the user the Flash version of your site or the HTML5 version. The Development team are working on making the HTML5 version as similar as possible to the Flash version.
Click on the example below to see the differences:
What does this mean for Flash and Webeden?
We still see Flash as a huge part of Web Development and the Web as a whole and will keep the Editor itself in Flash as we feel it still provides the best drag and drop features of any other language.
So just to round up in Q3 (july-sep) 2012, Webeden users will have the option of publishing their site in Flash or HTML5 by default. Any new sites made after this launch will auto publish in HTML5.
The reason for all this is that HTML5 is the future and we here at Webeden love the future and look forward to it and sharing it with you.
