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.
