Adobe releases Edge software to design multimedia with HTML5, not Flash

The Washington Post
Adobe released a new software tool today for creating animations and designing interactive media with HTML5. The program, called Edge, is free for now as the company refines it. A tool like this can help developers create HTML5 elements — such as display ads, Web apps or mobile apps — that will run in any browser on any device, just like a normal Web page. It poses an alternative to Adobe's proprietary Flash application, which iPhones and iPads do not support. But the Post reports that this isn't a sign that Adobe is abandoning Flash. "Flash remains very relevant" in creating video and data-driven applications, said Devin Fernandez, an Adobe product manager.
