Apple to Adobe: Flash is the weakest link, buh-bye


The New York Times is going to HTML 5.

Contra the linked article, Google won't be running Flash 5 trials on YouTube in the future -- they already are (I've been enrolled in the beta program for some time).

One commenter believes that HTML 5 won't supplant Flash until Windows users substantially ditch MSIE 8. I'm thinking it's the other way around: If Microsoft wants to remain a major browser player, it had better get MSIE 9 out the door most ricky-tick before all its customers wander off to Chrome, Firefox, Opera, etc., never to return.
