Opera joins in Jobs v Flash argument

flash opera html5

Some interesting comments Opera's product analyst Phillip Grønvold on the future of flash. I think they are right, flash has it's place. But it's usage for video for example is an excellent example of what you should use HTML5 for nowadays.

"But flash as a video container makes very little sense for CPU, WiFi battery usage etcetera – you can cook an egg on [devices] once you start running Flash on them and there's a reason for that."

Don't get me wrong, flash is great for some stuff, but I even see it for building webforms ( with openLazlo ) and that is just plain stupid.

The best line I think was:

"But at Opera we say that the future of the web is open web standards and Flash is not an open web standards technology"
