    Thanks for saying the truth. As a Flash Developer (now soon to be an AIR Developer), I couldn’t agree more. Adobe did not understand itself, and because of that it couldn’t defend what is arguable one of its more important products. HTML5 is hampered by Javascript–which even Google wants to replace. But this isn’t gong to happen soon. Adobe can swim as fast as possible to make good HTML5 tools but it will run up against the limitations of the traditionals/Open Source Web stack technologies. It will be years before these are brought to a level where the browser can compete with the app. In that time, Apple, Microsoft and others will lengthen their lead and leave the browser as something does useful for very limited things.
