Adobe Launches HTML5 Rich Media Editor | PCWorld

A significant HTML5 market milestone

"Adobe has shown that it can pivot nicely to new trends. It shows that they can remain the premier tools vendor no matter what the technology inside is," said IDC applications development analyst Al Hilwa. "There are very few companies in tune with designer needs and sensibilities as much as Adobe is, and this tool really shows it. It brings the time-line model familiar to many Flash developers to the new world of HTML5 and JavaScript, while retaining the integrity of the code."

Adobe does not expect that Edge will supplant Flash entirely, at least not in the near future. "Flash technology will remain a key component for specific use cases, such as high-end video or gaming," Fernandez said. "We definitely see HTML5 and Flash continuing to co-exist, and so we'll continue to work on solutions for both at Adobe. Users will decide what technology they will use."
