I am really curious to know why there has been such a tremendous lack of innovation, with Web, when compared to Post and Video, over the years, and especially in recent time, with this new beta?
There are so many amazing features that can be integrated, especially when compared to things like WiX and Wordpress.
What's coming down the pipeline? When can we see more?
I heard that the CEO of Adobe, Shantanu, doesn't really like web technologies, and that's a big reason.
Is this true?
Why does this seem to be such a taboo subject, that everyone always skirts around, every time I ask?
Thank you kindly.
You do know that we are just volunteers answering questions and trying to help people. We don't know what is coming down the pipeline at Adobe or what the CEO of Adobe likes or dislikes. That being said, seems like there is innovation all of the time.
Have you used Adobe Express Web, and have compared it to the features of Video and Post, in the beta?
This is what I am talking about.
In truth, I was hoping that this would catch the eye of a moderator, and/or someone who might have a valid answer to my question.
Thanks so much.

Hi Daniel L Rappaport,
This sounds to me like an unfounded rumor, unless you have a credible source to share with us.
Sure, I understand your curiosity about the apparent lack of innovation in the web industry compared to Post and Video technologies. It does seem like there are so many exciting possibilities for integrating amazing features, especially when you consider platforms like WiX and Wordpress.
The web has been around for quite some time, and it's possible that the initial surge of innovation has settled into a more mature phase. Standardization and compatibility across various platforms and browsers may also slow down the introduction of groundbreaking changes, as there needs to be agreement among multiple stakeholders.
Security concerns also play a crucial role in the development of new web features. As the web becomes more complex, it's essential to thoroughly vet new ideas to avoid introducing potential vulnerabilities that could pose risks to users.
Another factor that might contribute to the perceived lack of innovation is the fragmentation of the web ecosystem. With so many different tools, frameworks, and development approaches, it can be challenging to achieve a unified vision and maintain a fast pace of innovation.
Regarding the "new beta" you mentioned, without specific details, it's tough to assess its potential impact on web innovation. However, beta releases often indicate ongoing development, with more features and improvements likely to come.
As for the claim about Adobe's CEO, Shantanu Narayen, not liking web technologies, I couldn't find any information to support that. It's important to be cautious about rumors and unverified statements.
The hesitation to openly discuss this subject might stem from differing opinions, sensitivities around the topic, or a lack of definite answers due to the complexity of the issue.
As for what's coming down the pipeline and when we can expect more innovations, it's challenging to make precise predictions. Technological advancements often arise unexpectedly, driven by market demands and breakthrough discoveries. Rest assured, the web industry is continually evolving, and exciting developments are likely to emerge in due course.
If you're passionate about driving innovation in the web space, consider engaging with relevant communities, staying up-to-date with the latest web technologies and standards, and exploring opportunities to contribute to open-source projects or collaborate with others in the industry. This way, you can play an active role in shaping the future of the web.
