Adobe stops development on mobile browser Flash
Adobe Systems Inc. is pulling its Flash software for Web video and games from the browsers of mobile devices, though Flash will still work on mobile apps and on the Web browsers of regular computers.
The move is a win for Apple Inc., which has famously banned Flash from working on the iPhone and the iPad. Adobe said Wednesday, however, that the about-face is about giving people what they want.
Adobe is now focusing their development efforts on:
- Applications for mobile
- Expressive content on the desktop (in and out of browser)
- Increasing their investments in HTML5 in general
