Adobe is telling people to embrace open web standards

HTML5 and Flash icons

Adobe announced November 30th that it will phase out Flash to more fully support HTML5 and other web standards.

In an announcement made yesterday, Adobe is renaming its Flash Professional CC program Animate CC in a move to deprecate Flash in favor of HTML5. Flash creation and support will still be available through Adobe, however, the focus will be on security instead of features due to the increase in the number of its susceptibilities.

Adobe will also release an HTML5 video player for desktop browsers to complement Adobe’s support for HTML5 on mobile devices.

The Verge is reporting that Adobe will see Flash continue to be used as the HTML5 or other standards have yet to fully mature.

New features for Google Forms and Chromebook

Adobe-Google.pngGoogle today announced new updates for their Forms online survey offering. Forms will now incorporate a search feature within the Forms help menu accessible via keyboard shortcut (Alt-/) as well as new customization features for randomizing questions and inserting video.

Additionally, Google also announced that Adobe Photoshop is now available via stream on Chromebooks. Currently, this service is only available to students in North America who have purchased an Adobe Creative Cloud subscription. Despite presumably needing to have a constant Internet connection, the new service will include full integration with Google Drive thus eliminating the need to upload and download Adobe files like in past editions of the software.

For more information on Google Forms and Adobe on Chromebooks, follow these links to the Google Blog: (Forms, Adobe)
