As a long time Flash user/developer, I have come to the conclussion that HTML5 sucks. Here's the pro's of Flash for me...
I could keep going on with many minor things but these are my main five. I have multiple pc's like most developers but I always hop on this older one for development (XP and Win7) and sometimes go to youtube. I remember watching Flash HD videos on youtube and my fan hardly ever ran full blast. Nowadays, I can barely play HD videos without stuttering or buffering.
Flash websites loaded so fast and the Flashkit community was large. Everyone creating interesting websites and games. I feel bored and irritated with today's website looking boring and crippled with ads. Thanks Google!
Anyways, just wondering if anyone else feels the way I do? Flash needs to stay alive.
absolutely agree, I"m happy some developers go back to reason. I would add that if at least html5/js had the whole class packages that Actionscript2/3 have like rtmfp (udp), multicast ip and application, netgroup, vector arrays etc... but it's not the case and if no good next step evolution like webassembly does not grab Flash API into the game so it will be a massive regression.
Thanks for your feedback.
